If you want to get only filename and dont want to use weird:

<?php
pathinfo
($file->getBasename(), PATHINFO_FILENAME);
?>

You can use (also weird but ~better looking):

<?php
$file
->getBasename('.'.$file->getExtension());
?>

PS: Why there is getFilename ? when it returns ~same stuff as getBasename ? I have to do this ugly stuff^ instead of simple getFilename...
