How to pull from a remote name which begin with a dash


In git, it is possible to handle a remote name with - character star.

For example, we can add a remote which begins with -, update it by just using the option -- in the git command (-- separate between command option and the remote name).

But it doesn't work on :

git pull -- "-myremotename" "master"

And, I get this error message :

error: unknown switch `y'
usage: git fetch [<options>] [<repository> [<refspec>...]]

I think that -- option doesn't work in git pull, because pull is a combination of git fetch followed by git merge, and -- isn't used when making this 2 commands.

Any idea to fix it ?
