You *cannot* rename the file on disk (without bypassing Galaxy
and editing the database and renaming the file directly). This is
by design - unless you are an administrator debugging something
or a tool author you don't need to know the actual filename on disk.

You *can* rename the description of the file as shown within the
Galaxy interface (via edit attributes).
