I don't rename the files in the catalog, I just give the exported JPEGs or TIFFs new, suitable names using the Export dialog box.

My RAW filenames are meaningless because the tethered shooting app begins every session at 0001. So it's entirely possible for client files from multiple sessions to have duplicate filenames.

I generally just use the project name, or project name and date and add a sequence number (01-nn) at export time.

It makes it easier when I write up the license agreement because I just list <project name>_01 etc.

I often don't keep the JPEGs and TIFFs that I delivered to the client. I figure that I can recreate them in LR anytime I want, even if I have made additional changes since.

Everything in the frame must contribute to the picture.
