[SOLVED] (luci) firewall allow rule with dhcp client name as source and destination

When configuring firewall rules in luci to allow a set of specific clients on the guest interface to allow communication with a specific destination on the guests interface I can only use ip addresses as source and destination.

Is there any add on I can install so that I can select the client name as discovered by dhcp so that if that changes over time things will still work?

Maybe it would be possible by using the name in an ipset that is refreshed frequently. However it would be better to do it using mac address or set a static lease for that host in dhcp.
