Description

Case 1: When you Export > Save Features As from an existing layer into a geopackage layer and check the Add to layers box, then the layer name is like <geopackage_name ><layername>.

Case 2: When you use Browser or Data Source Manager to 'create a new layer or table', or to add an existing geopackage layer into the Layers, or use the New Geopackage Layer dialog, then the newly added layer name is just <layername>, and you do not get the geopackage name prefixing it.

Please could the layer naming be consistent. Although I prefer the Case 1 outcome, I expect it may be a lot easier to make Case 1 behave the same as Case 2.

Just to add for information, I have been working in QGIS 3.4.2 so far, and I think this request is really for a correction that should be implemented in the LTR. Thanks.
