You can't rename the files with Recuva. Eventually the names will be overwritten as new files are created, as long as you don't clean too often. You could also use secure deletion in CCleaner, which will rename any files it deletes. This is a bit heavy-handed, though. Alternatively use a disk wiper that does rename deleted files, such as Eraser. That's even heavier-handed.
