Naming Cygwin Shells

Tue Oct 9 05:45:00 GMT 2007

Simple question here. I am trying to figure out a way to name a cygwin shell
so that I can have multiple windows up doing tails and other such functions
and easily see what system i am looking at. 

I know that in CMD if i want to change the name of a CMD window to shellname
the command the command is simply> title shellname

It was suggested that for cygwin i would use> cmd /c title=shellname

but that die not work. does any one know how I could accomplish this?
