Home pages tend to do better in rankings for some sites because they are linked to more frequently than inside pages.
Using keywords in filenames probably provides a bit of help, particularly if it's not overdone. Also think of your potential visitors, who will see the filename of the site in the SERPS -- are you more or less tempted to click on a listing that has a filename with four hyphens?
I guess my overall opinion is that there are a lot more things to worry about than what you are going to name the page.
