ASM filenames are unique anyway, you have no actual control over them, ASM does. You can add your own aliases for ASM filenames so that the same file can be resolved using two or more names, but that's about it. If you create another test db, ASM will create new unique filenames for its files. If you move or clone a db with RMAN, ASM will create new unique filenames for its files either (and I know of no other way to import files into ASM than RMAN.)
