Can file names be encrypted?

I may have missed it somewhere, but it seems there is no way to encrypt file names/document names along with their content. It seems too enticing to encrypt my banking documents, but leave the "Banking Details" visible as a file name after encryption.
Any hints?

wouldn't worry about it to be honest, but just for example, if you encrypted it that would also be fairly obvious, after all who keeps a file with random letters and numbers as a filename? A better solution might be to call it something less obvious, such a 'Thankyou letter 08'.

I'd like encrypted filenames...

Actually, random filenames would seem like system files. I really don't want to rename all the files encrypted. I'd rather have a file named "hwh2vdk.tmp", than Birth Cirtifricate.doc, or Movie.ISO.
