Filename conventions for organization?

Hi,
I've been using a particular ebook reader app on my iphone for a couple years primarily because of it's ability to place books within folders and sub-folders. I carry around several hundred books at a time (yes, I know I'm weird ) and I like to be able to look them up by authors last name initial - then authors name - then series name (if any) - then book name listed in series order.

Unfortunately said app just doesn't support the formatting options I want to see, and doesn't support ePub very well in general. So it's time to move on.

My biggest question is: is there some sort of file naming convention I should use when I create ePubs?
e.g "LastName, FirstName MI - SeriesName Index# - BookName.epub"

Or is there an ePub ereader that will allow sorting/organizing the list based on the metadata inherent in the file - thus allowing a filename of "Bookname.epub"?

Cheers!
