Lightroom CC: Easier copy image identification

I find it confusing the way that copy images have the same file name with no indication of which is the copy image. This causes a problem if I copy the image from within an album only to find I've altered the original image which is also included in other albums.

Also, I have found that if I have a series of photos with the same time stamp (as with bracketed images) and then I make a copy of one of those images, the original image and copy are not always placed side by side (in the grid and film views). This would need a combination of sort by time and file name.

As part of avoiding confusion as to which photo I am viewing amongst very similar shots it would help to have the file name/info viewable in the edit view on the desktop version (as can be done on the mobile version).

In agreement here, seems impossible to tell which version you're working on. I've only managed it so far by syncing back to Classic, and seeing which one appears as a virtual copy there.
