Is there a way to change the filenames from "GPTempDownload.jpg" when uploading to an iPad?

When I use the GoPro app on my iPad to import my photos, all of the images are all called "GPTempDownLoad.jpg" then followed by a number e.g. GPTempDownLoad.jpg (2), (3) etc.  This really messes up my iPad backup solution. I would like to understand if there is a way to use the standard naming convention of the GoPro image file when downloading to an iPad instead of the temporary filename?

 

For complete information - I use an WD MyCloud Mirror solution to backup my iPad rather than iCloud.
