it is not a good idea to use the interface name as a unique identifier,
this is not resilient for kernel updates or configuration updates, e.g
installing an extra card

Just use the HW mac address as a unique identifier in the network
scripts:

from [1]:
HWADDR=MAC-address
where MAC-address is the hardware address of the Ethernet device in the
form AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF. This directive must be used in machines
containing more than one NIC to ensure that the interfaces are assigned
the correct device names regardless of the configured load order for
each NIC's module.
