We are looking at the combination of in-body nano communication with the Internet of Things (IoT) and the resulting research challenges in the Internet of Nano Things (IoNT). It is this combination that enables a wide range of new applications, particularly in the biomedical domain. One of the many challenges in functional and non-functional aspects is the addressing and naming of nodes in a nano network. Our study in this area not only includes top-down techniques driven from today's IoT, but also new bottom-up ideas, originating from molecular level communication. In this paper we come up with a summary of theoretical, simulated and realized ideas to draw conclusions about implementation and performance potential before we present our concept for addressing through Function Centric Networking focusing on medical in-body communication scenarios. It allows us to address specific groups of interchangeable and replaceable nano machines in a network, while it does not rely on the durability and uniqueness of individual nodes.
