Tab names depend on type of connection you start. If you start using direct assignment of address, than the connection name is the server address. If you double click a favorite directly in terminals, than the connection name reflects the favorite name.

Your requirement can be simulated using stored favorite name parameter (terminals /favs:server,server1 will start two servers by their favorite name).

Second option is to propose feature request, because there is no such command line parameter.
