I some how have gotten the file name twice. The original name was
20120710-IMG-9818-2.dng and now it is 20120710- 20120710-IMG-9818-2.dng

this has happened to a great number of files and I don't want to make it worse. Any ideas?

edit I also should add that I am on a Macbook Pro and run iPhoto as well.

Lightroom names/renames source images when importing and when you make an explicit gesture to rename.

In each case, there is a rename format that you are required to supply.

I think the issue is that the original filename is wrong, or at least it seems so. Begs the question of whether it was operator error (was, actually, named, originally, as shown), or Lr bug (recording/displaying wrong value for original filename).
