You can set your hostname the same way as without DHCP: through

You shouldn't put a `lease' into the dhclient.conf: that's only used
to help configure the network if the DHCP server is down.

The `send host-name' directive is meant to tell the server the
hostname you'd like to have. I use this to update the DNS information
for my home network.
