Windows 2012 R2 HyperV -- same switch name for easy restore ?

I currently have two PHYSICAL servers with some
HyperV VMs on them in a non-HA config,
both PHYSICAL boxes stand-alone.

I assume I should have the same attached "VM Switch Names"
on both PHYSICAL servers (i.e. vSwitch01, vSwitch02, etc) for
easy HyperV VM moving if needed ?
  ** i.e. I decide to move VM #1 from PHYSICAL server #1
             to PHYSICAL server #2 for some reason

Is there a question here?  Are you using replication between the 2 host machines? Export/Import from 1 to the other?

If you aren't using automated processes like live migration or similar the. This is really a non-issue. You simply plug the vNIC into the new vSwitch when you import it. Switch name is not relevant, but good documentation is. If you are looking at a more automated process then yes, keeping switch names consistent is important.
