Where are you seeing workspace "names" ?

AFAIK, there's no easy way to change their names in the lxpanel applet.

That said, you could always 'refer' to them as Bob and Aunt Hilda if you want ;)

hahahah its ok i was just wondering actually cos work space 2 usually has no tooltip on it but one says "1" not sure why it does that seems LXpanel is very glitchy or temperamental.

Try this, as dopey as it may seem.  Navigate to the Peppermint Control Center: menu > Preferences > Peppermint Control Center.  Under the Window Manager tab find the, Number of Workspaces settings and increase it to say - 5 or 7.  Close the Peppermint Control Center.  Now reopen it and reset the Workspaces back to 2.  It may clear up the numbers not showing up.  We already know that things in the panel can act up so, doing something as daft as this this may clear it up - I don't know.  It can't hurt to try  :-\.
Backup! Backup! Backup! If you're missing any of these -  you ain't Backed Up!
