Yes, my post was ambiguous. I prefer "file name" when used in the generic sense. However, as a variable name, I prefer "filename" (usually in italics or delimited) to eliminate the small chance that someone might interpret the space as part of the syntax. Here's an example:

To save a file, do one of the following:

- Enter the file name and click OK.
- Enter the following in the Command box:

save <filename> where <filename> is a name of your choice
