Yes - this goes for both a prefix and a suffix, so one of each is also easy to name. Where an item gets more than one prefix or more than one suffix, the highest "level" one is used in the name (where level is one of bad, average, good, great, uber) - if both are the same level, it just uses whichever appears first in the edit file.

Note that themed items always take the name of the theme, but that the theme is only ever a prefix OR a suffix, meaning you can have a Prefixed Item Of Theme or a Themed Item Of Suffix.
