Kind of a big deal

You need a DNS-server for this. A small VM or a Raspberry Pi will be enough for most environments. "unbound" is a linux package that can be used here. It can be very lightweight.

You can also use the internal Windows-server if available.

Can I ask what you're looking to do using this?

Note that an MX automatically obtains a publicly visible DNS hostname - which you can then use as a destination for things like Client VPN, instead of needing to use the public IP address, which may change from time-to-time, depending on your Internet service:   https://documentation.meraki.com/MX/Other_Topics/Dynamic_DNS_(DDNS)

If this is for accessing an internal host from other internal hosts, you can simply edit the "hosts" file on a computer to do this.
