Importing photos with same names to others already in LR CC do not appear

I like cloud. I live in the Google ecosystem.
So I was very excited when Adobe announce Lightroom CC. I knew it will not be perfect at first, but it might be the future as I see it.

But yesterday, I got stuck with an annoying problem. I always shoot in RAW, my PC died few weeks ago so I do my editing on my Chromebook at the moment, with Lr for Android, and I realize that when I import photos in Lr CC that have same names of photos already there, they don't appear. (I don't know if it do the same with Lr CC for PC)

Before CC, when I used Lr Classic, I did not have that problem. I import them, even if the had the same names to others, and rename them in batches.

Do you have the same problem? What are your solutions?
Thank you !

How it works to me is, that if the photo alfeady exists, it will not import again, or when the name exists, it will simply rename to an Lightroom cc number. I agree it would be nice if we could use (batch) renaming, especially for these type of issues. The solution for the time being is to make sure that you do renaming outside Lr and than import.
