Personally I would be happy if I could pass in a dictionary that maps names to argument tuples, or an iterator yielding (name, (argtuple)) pairs, and just have the failure report the name.  That is, make me responsible for generating meaningful names, don't autogenerate them.  Then someone could provide a name autogenerate helper on top of that base interface. 

Checking for name clashes would be nice, but it would be nice to have that for non-parameterized test cases, too (I've been bitten by that a number of time ;)
