When I add a GeoJSON layer to my QGIS project, it always gets the name OGRGeoJSON. This is in contrast with shapefile layers, which seem to be named after the file name by default.

Is there a way to either configure QGIS or change my GeoJSON files so that they get a meaningful default name when I first add them to a project?

I think that may be configuration is somewhere in the actual geojson hash...thats just a guess I'm not sure. At least I hope it is...good question...too good...any luck on your end in the last 10 months? –  boulder_ruby Oct 16 '13 at 19:26
