In an mp3 file, not only is it possible to save the music itself, but details such as the title, the artist, the album and much more information as well in the so-called mp3-tag. Some programs, for example freeamp, display the songs name saved in this tag instead of the file name. When creating your own files, bear in mind that these usually do not have an mp3-tag. There are some programs which allow you to edit this tag, however only two have a GUI.

 
 
kmp3te

This KDE-program is also usable if you do not work with KDE, as long as you have the necessary QT libraries. The handling of this program is fairly easy and the design looks great. Working with it is comfortable and fast. On the left side of the window, the files in the directory are displayed, while the right side is used to change the tag of the selected file. The program can be found at http://perso.wanadoo.fr/smf/.

freeztag

The second program is called freeztag and is a GTK program. The homepage is located at http://katz.linuxpower.org/freezetag/. The program looks a bit simple but it is quite useful. Its best feature is the possibility to rename more than one file at a time. The option to name the files after the name given in the mp3-tag can be quite useful as well.
