Photo File Naming

When you import your photos to your workflow software, how do you name the file? It's simple to just keep the camera give name "IMG_1234", however I want a unique serial name for each file and I know I will shoot more than 9999 photos in the life of the camera.

I'm thinking of using the naming convention IMG_1234_A, where A goes from A to Z so every time the counter reaches 9999, the letter dials up one. This will give at least 9999 x 26 combinations.
