Store the files with numbers and save the original name in the database.
Xsendfile the numbered file and state that the file should be offered
with the original name. For example, in PHP:

    header("X-Sendfile: $numberedfile");
    header("Content-Type: application/octet-stream");
    header("Content-Disposition: attachment; file=\"$originalname\"");

The downloaded file needs not to be the same name that the save as
offered by the browser.
