keeping geometry names after import of fem

I have the following problem: My model has several geometries (3 to be precise). Something went wrong (I'm not the only one developing the model, so I do not know what my colleague has done to the model, and of course she cannot explain me what she did, as she did quite a lot of stuff.) So now COMSOL (still using 3.4) gives me error at postprocessing in the first geometry - I cannot plot anything there. And only there. Everything is fine with the other two geometries. Also the problem is not with the equations themselves, because I can plot the same quantities that I have transferred to the other geometries by extrusion coupling.
I am able to work around that by exporting the model as fem structure, resetting the model and then importing the fem structure again. The problem is that in this case the geometries no longer have the names I've given to them, but are named Geom1, Geom2 and Geom3. As this is quite a complex model, with a lot of equations (some call them (multi)physics, dunno why) and later we will be adding more equations and geometries to the model, losing the names of the geometries makes the entire model hard to follow for other people and even for us.
So, my problem: why is this happening and is there a way to rename the geometries back to their original names? I know it looks like a simple question, but it's important for me.
Thank you in advance,
