there should be a 2nd tab where you specify the new name....or you can just do it through tsql

restore database newdatabasename
from disk = 'c:\backupfile.bak'
with move 'DatabaseName_Data' to 'c:\newfolder\databasename_data.mdf',
move 'DatabaseName_Log' to 'c:\newfolder\databasename_log.ldf'

If you use the SQL Server Enterprise manager you can actually TYPE the new name in the field that says: "To Database:"   You don't have to use the drop-down list if you don't want to.  You can just type in any name you want.
