Yes, it is possible.

You need to configure the tunnel-group with the name of the peer, and make sure that is what the peer is sending down.

Also, use crypto isakmp address hostname - I would try with auto first, as that should automatically pick up on it being hostname.

I don't think there is an example link for that. You may have to go through trial and error and see what works eventually. Once you have the configuration, paste it here, and I'll see if it looks alright.
