What is the newest checkpoint in multiple checkpoints (name or timestamp)?

If I have had lightning save the last 3 checkpoints then is the name of the checkpoint or the timestamp the final arbiter of which checkpoint is newest/best.

I don’t see how it can’t be timestamp because of file systems reasons, but it also goes against some of my instincts so I thought I would ask.

For example, if I have these files from `ls -haltr :

-rw-rw-r-- 1 myself myself 131M Mar 8 01:59 checkpoint-v2.ckpt
-rw-rw-r-- 1 myself myself 131M Mar 8 02:37 checkpoint.ckpt
-rw-rw-r-- 1 myself myself 131M Mar 8 07:03 checkpoint-v1.ckpt

Newest has to be checkpoint-v1.ckpt right?

So does that imply lightning just rotate through names in a round robin fashion?

Or I am missing something and the least mangled name is the newest?

Thanks for the confirmation/insight.
