For a while, when I took a Hyper-V snapshot, I was willing to live with the fact that the snapshot didn't have a name - just a date and time. But, after years of using VMware Workstation rather than Hyper-V for my home lab, I liked VMware's snapshot naming better.

Until I realized that I'm blind.

In Hyper-V, you can rename a snapshot to be something more meaningful than a date and time stamp. After all, "Pre-DPM deployment" is a lot more descriptive than "10/23/2010 1:14:56 PM"

To rename a snapshot in Hyper-V, simply take the snapshot, then right-click the new snapshot and click Rename and type in a descriptive name for the snapshot.
