For example:

  Host bernadette
    HostName my.ip.add.ress
    Port 10022
    HostKeyAlias bernadette
    CheckHostIP no

  Host raymonde
    HostName my.ip.add.ress
    Port 10023
    HostKeyAlias raymonde
    CheckHostIP no

Now you should be able to do "ssh bernadette" and "ssh raymonde".

Personnally, I use something like dnsalias.org to register my hostname
so if the IP address changes I don't need to change config files
(set HostName foobar.dnsalias.org - where foobar is the name you registered)
