My best suggestion would be to use the /etc/hosts file. This file (if you have added the entries) will list IPs against hostnames. This will allow you to use programs like ping from the command line using hostnames, and you can use it to cross refernce your squid logs.

If you don't fancy setting up a hosts file, you could set samba up as a WINS server. Then you can cross reference the wins data against the squid logs.
