    What I'm about to say is going to upset some, but here I go. You can name a backup anything you want if you use.........ROM Manager. It will get the MD5 sum right. You still can't have any spaces though.
    For further info on what YOU can do, and what you need to avoid doing, read this: The Truth About ROM Manager
    I have the Premium version just to keep the thread up to date. Everything is true and correct and up to date.
    Quit being scared of ROM Manager. It does have some very good functions, like: Being able to rename and delete a backup, downloading the latest Gapps,etc. Everything is spelled out in my thread.
    I personally don't think the premium version is worth buying, but, it will allow you to do automatic backups if your a flash-a-holic. You can also use the premium version to flash any ROM if you first download obijohn's update_wiper_1.3.zip and put on the sd card. These are things much better left to doing manually, hence no need to pay the $5.00+ the dev want's for the premium version.

    Whenever I rename a backup, all I would
    do is something like AOKP2012-08-05-02:08:56
    Basically just add a "tag" before the date/time that helps me remember what ROM it is. And I just rename it in a standard file manager, and have yet to run into any issues.
    I tend to keep 1 nandroid per ROM, and if I update a ROM, I make a new updated nandroid, rename its folder, and delete the old one.
    Since I use Quattrimus AOKP, CM10 ZVJ JellyBean(with my JB super fix patch), and a slimmed personally edited stock(for Netflix), I tag each respectively; "AOKP", "JELLY", "STOCK".
    And I use all 3 quite frequently, all on COT LS670 recovery.

    You have to flash the recovery from manager uses to use any of its functions. So yes, keep being scared of rom manager.

    Only the V's with the S screen will run into issues with ROM Manager's recovery.
    I used ROM manager to flash its recovery back when I was a noob, and used it up till JerryScript made his own Recover mod(currently using ls670 cannibal).
    I didn't have any issues with that recovery, except for its color scheme.

    But not all.
    I don't support, nor endorse the use of ROM manager at all, despite it can be useful to some, in fact, I'm against it 100%.
    Same with ROM toolbox, both do have SOME usefulness, but other than that, its best to do everything manually, with exception of some things.

    Easiest fix for me was to make a blank text document and rename to nandroid.md5 (0 byte) inserted into the backup folder.
    This way CWM bypasses md5 check and restore your backups immediately
