nohup, but not nohup.out -- how to?

I am very fond of doing "nohup somecommand & sleep 1; tail -f
nohup.out" to start a background job and then watch its output.  Then
I can stop watching the output and log out and the job continues.

But what I don't like is that it is writing to nohup.out.  I'd prefer
another filename, one that I can set on the command line.
