I understand that the behaviour is correct. However, when I perform an
action on a file, and a "Rename <filename>" dialog pops up, my initial
thought is that I am about to rename <filename>, NOT the copy.

Maybe it would be possible to mention it was in response to a copy.
Something like "Rename copy of <filename>" instead of "Rename <filename>"
