How to change the referred to name of a submodule in source tree tab

I'm using the same submodule accessible from two different repos.  Each reference the same submodule.  When I open a submodule from the left tab under Submodules, a new submodule horizontal repo tab appears on the top bar and its cloned.  If I open this same submodule in a different repo, a duplicate horizontally tabbed name appears for its clone.  The trouble is after a while I have no idea which submodule is associated where.  I was hoping to simply change its tabbed name so I could prefix it with its parent repo name.

I'd like to bump this question.

We use the submodules features extensively, and not knowing which is the parent repo of a submodule has caused confussions and mistakes. We've even considered migrating to other apps like SmartGit or Git Extensions, but having this in Sourcetree would be super nice.
