Now, while trying to move them onto Calibre (with the latest DeDRM version), I get a folder full of gibberish names. I can't tell which book is which, and a substantial number of them are already on my Calibre. Is there any way to connect the code names to the actual titles, so I can tell what I'm trying to grab for Calibre?

When I open my Kindle app on my Mac, it downloads a folder with a gibberish name, but recognizable suffixes within that folder.   I can only recognize them by the date.   But when it loads into Calibre, I have the correct name.   So load them all in Calibre and prune them from there!
