Redundant pano file names in LightRoom Classic

I have DNGs from my M2P to stitch in Lightroom. Usually the resulting panos have much better detail than the JPGs stitched by the aircraft's built-in processor. To be expected since it only produces a JPG.

Lightroom in general will take the first file name of a pano series and append "Pano" to it.

The problem is, all of the pano shots from the M2P have generic names, like Pano0001.DNG (though placed in separate folders)

As a result if I stitch these in LR Classic (Mac version),, it produces a Pano0001-Pano.DNG. So if I have 6 folders of pano shots and I stitch them all, I will have 6 Pano0001-Pano.DNG files.

In separate subfolders of course but they will have these redundant file names so if I export them later to another program or to upload online ,then it becomes a hassle.

I'd like to have more control naming them and having unique pano (and for that matter, Hyperlapse files) in my LRC library.

But I see no way to rename the Pano files nor an easy way for LRC to recognize them by more unique names I would give them, other than to re-import them.

Has anyone found a better way to manage these drone panos stitched in LRC?
