As much as possible, I use the names as specified at
http://cdimages.ubuntu.com/ , since these are the official daily
images. For example, for the desktop image, 

Ubuntu natty-desktop-i386.iso
Xubuntu natty-desktop-amd64.iso

which are both desktop images. I also specify the date of the image,
rather than the date I synced the image, since the image could be from
a day or two ago.
