I was always under the impression that you could give a stash a name by doing git stash save stashname, which you could, later on, apply by doing git stash apply stashname. But it seems that in this case, all that happens is that stashname will be used as the stash description.
Is there no way to actually name a stash? If not, what would you recommend to achieve equivalent functionality? Essentially I have a small stash that I would periodically like to apply, but don't want to always have to hunt in git stash list what its actual stash number is.
