Is it possible to change hostnames for Guest clients using YazFi?

Seems like I found the solution while reading about something else.

Just an FYI if following those directions (from the YazFi Github Wiki post). If one has a problem with the static/fixed IP address not being assigned to the YazFi client(s). Reverse the [DESIRED HOSTNAME],[DESIRED IP ADDRESS] so it's [DESIRED IP ADDRESS],[DESIRED HOSTNAME] and see if that fixes the issue.

Example:
pc_append "dhcp-host=XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX,192.168.3.2,devicename" $CONFIG

Edit to add: If anyone's interested in the setting of a static IP for YazFi clients, and one method of getting a Pi-Hole to use client names, see the following two posts in the older YazFi thread where this was previously discussed.
