Assign name to a split container [closed]

Currently when I split a container under a stacked mode to a tabbed mode, the container name is assigned to something like i3: T[foo bar baz].

Can I change this name (particularly the "i3" part) in an ad-hoc manner?

The background is that I often open a stacked container for each ticket I'm working on, and tabbed sub-containers to hold particular detail windows. Most of windows are almost always "uzbl-core" or "urxvt", so the title will not tell me much about what ticket tit is (typically all stacked conts end up named just i3: T[uzbl-core uzbl-core...]). I think that assigning a nickname would help me a lot here.

This is not possible yet. There is a (unfortunately defunct) [feature request for that]( Also, this is a duplicate of [this question](
