I found a way to get around this issue. I copied all my photos to a new folder, then used PhotoSurfer - a free app from the Web - to change the date taken on all the photos to the same date and time. When I reloaded the photos to my iPod - since all the dates taken were the same - the photos were sorted by their filename.
There were a few exceptions. There were two photos that were not .jpg files and two photos I had not named properly. Once I changed the two photos to jpg files and corrected the names of the other two, and then again changed the date taken of all the photos to a new same time, all the photos loaded properly - that is, sorted by name.
