Rename Terminal Tabs in Mac OS X
Having a bunch of Terminal tabs named “bash” “bash” and “bash” isn’t too useful, instead you can rename each tab individually to something more specific by using the Terminal inspector. Before doing so, keep in mind that tabs default to rename themselves automatically based on the currently running process.
From any multi-tabbed Terminal window, just hit Shift+Command+i, or pull down the “Shell” menu and select “Edit Title”, from here you can either rename the tab name, or even the Terminal window itself.
Name tabs by location, category, purpose, usage, whatever you go with will be easier to identify than the defaults.
