ms@spot:~$ apt-cache show ifrename
Package: ifrename
Maintainer: Guus Sliepen <guus@debian.org>
Architecture: i386
Version: 26+27pre26-2
Description: Rename network interfaces based on various static criteria
 Ifrename allow the user to decide what name a network interface will have.
 Ifrename can use a variety of selectors to specify how interface names match
 the network interfaces on the system, the most common selector is the
 interface MAC address.

ms@spot:~$ cat /etc/iftab 
lan  mac 00:...
wlan  mac 00:...

ms@spot:/etc/network/if-pre-up.d$ cat ifrename 

So with staring networking renames all interfaces according to /etc/iftab.

Problem solved :)
