Dynamic DNS maybe?  I'm fairly lazy with my systems at home and use
Smoothwall as the firewall for my home network, it has a nice
interface where I pick the dynamic DNS service and upon connection it
fires off a script that sends the required info to the service and
sure enough I can access my servers (using port forwarding) with a
pleasant FQDN... even if it is a subdomain/host of :)

I'm fairly sure you could find a script on the net from a google
search on dynamic DNS... or even the services themselves would have
links or scripts to "do the dirty" work as part of the ppp-on script.
