I'm not sure if it can do it exactly, as I don't rename when importing. But
if it is not the case, you still have the possibility to use the batch
tools to rename anytime after importing; there are many functions available
to do that.

As for myself, I don't feel the need to rename the original pictures as
Digikam has plenty of searching/filtering criteria to find what I'm looking
for, whatever their name is, and wherever they are stored.
