No, the filenames are NOT consistent. Here are three of the six filenames I downloaded, as an example:


Classics_Harvard Classics-01.prc
Harvard Classics Volume II.prc
Harvard Classics 34.prc

As you can clearly see, there are three different file naming schemes used in these few files.

BTW: These were all from the MobiPocket versions. I looked briefly at the Sony *.lrf filenames and they do seem to be consistent, at least the three I glanced at.

I'm really not trying to be picky here. It is just that if you have dozens or hundreds of eBooks in your library, it will be easier to find a Harvard Classic volume if all the filenames begin with a consistent naming scheme. That way they will be in an alphabetized list. Otherwise you will have to manually search for them.
