Can we use Greek symbols on Matlab workspace? If so, how can we use them?

I have made a search, most of the replies on the net was that Greek symbols cannot be used on workspace.

Thank you.

I think its restricted to labels on plots. Any particular reason you want to use it like that?
What I usually do is to use the latin equivalent of the greek symbols e.g. r for $\rho$ or s for $\sigma$.
