[R] use of names() within lapply()

List g has 2 elements
 "2009-10-07" "2012-02-29"
and the list plot
lapply(g, plot, main=names(g))
results in equal plot titles with both list names, whereas distinct titles names(g) and names(g) are sought. Clearly, lapply is passing 'g' in stead of consecutively passing g and then g to process the additional 'main' argument to plot. help(lapply) is mute as to what to element-wise pass parameters. Any suggestion would be appreciated.
