thanks for the hint with the virt-tools-list.
I was and I am still uncertain which program is responsible of the
volume name. Virt-manager is the program that I want to use.
But virsh displays the same names with virsh vol-list.
So i was in the impression the names where set by libvirt.

Maybe I focused to much on virt-manager with my question.
I would be glad if someone could clarify where this problem/feature
can and sould be addressed.
