I'd like to give my Spaces helpful names like "Graphics" and "Communications" instead of using confusing, generic names like Desktop 1 and Desktop 2. Is there a way to accomplish that through a setting, a Terminal/hidden command, or a third party application? I'm using Mavericks.

    By spaces do you mean Mission Control on Mavericks? The old functionality where you could name virtual screens and they would exist in a semi-permanent grid is no longer shipping with OS X. – bmike Jan 27 '14 at 15:13
  • Yes. I am okay with all the functionality in Mavericks, though. I just want to be able to assign names. If it's not officially supported, I'm looking for something I can enter into Terminal, a plist to edit, or some other trick that will let me name them. – Michael Jan 27 '14 at 17:51

The third-party program TotalSpaces2 seems to offer this feature, along with many other Spaces-related features.
