There would be no point;
1. IP address is instantly revealed with a simple icmp echo request.
2. Your dns name will work just as well for a ddos attack

All domain names are mapped to an IP address, it just requires a simple ping request to get that information.

If someone is capable enough to set up a DDOS attack, they're sure as hell capable of performing a simple ICMP echo request.

Functionally, rendering any 'hiding' moot.
