just rename them at the filesystem level (keep the .ardour suffix).
presumably you are aware that you are free to choose better names when
creating them as well, the date is just a default guess at a name.

just keep in mind that loading a snapshot is no different from closing
and reopening the session. there is too much state in a session and it
is too complex in its inter-relationships to treat a snapshot as a
"diff" and just change the state of the currently loaded session.
