Twinview duplicate workspace names

I am using Twinview with 2 toolbars each has a grouping of workspaces. If I change the name or number of workspaces on either display the other one changes as well. Each display has uniques workspaces which is what I want. I just need to be able to change the names so they corresspond to each displays workspaces.

current display shows same # and names for both dispalays
ex. display 1 TEST / TEST2 / TEST3
display 2 TEST / TEST2 / TEST3
desired display 1 TEST / TEST2 / TEST3
display 2 DSPLY / DSPLY2 / DSPLY3

Any ideas would be appreciated.
