Console CP Command: Why are copies not labeled as such like they are in a GUI?
When I make a copy of a document in Windows, Windows will indicate in the name of the copy that this is a copy. Why does the console not label copies as such?

On the command line, you choose what to name the copy.
If you wanted a windows-like name you could easily do that in a copy command:
> cp somefile.txt copy_of_somefile.txt
But you can just as easily name it anything else you might want.
