What is the name for this music scale?

Trying to find if this minor scale has an actual name to it: the intervals are 1, 2, b3, #4, 5, 6, 7. In the key of C, the pitches would be C D Eb F# G A B C. I've been doing some research and the closest results I can find are either melodic minor (C D Eb F G A B) without the augmented 4th or the Hungarian minor/gypsy scale (C D Eb F# G bA B) which has a lowered sixth compared to my example. Is there a succinct scale name or mode that applies to my example, or can it only be described in terms relative to another scale?
