Can I name my clients?

Can I name (or rename) connected devices so that I can recognize them more easily in the future?
I have a Convexa-b router

vim /etc/config/dhcp

look for the mac address corresponding to the device and add the line

option name '*NAME*', where NAME is the desired name

config host '*mac-adresss*'
        option mac '*mac-adresss*'
        option ip ''
        option name '*NAME*'

This will create a Static IP in DHCP. You can also do it in LuCI → Network → DHCP and DNS → Static Leases.
