Assigning machine name according to a 'pattern': possible?

b) what might be required to implement it.
I'd like to be able to assign the names on a private network, as machines start, but in a regular way. An example should make things clear.

So, as machines start/connect to the private network, the pattern is: The first, then every 3rd instance is an 'aunt', 2,3,5,6 instances are named child.
If it makes implementation feasible/easier, the numeric index could be common:
Appreciate any hints or suggestions.
