You might use RESearch's “Rename files” with “[x] Evaluate as script”. Please read its docs (see @RegularReplaceScripting in [b][i]RESearchEng.hlf[/i][/b]) to learn how to get the existing names and return the new ones.
IMO, the main trick will be to ensure names' uniqueness.

Maybe win.GetFileInfo(FilePath).AlternateFileName can help?

Done with the excellent plugin Visual Renaming. Template N[1-8].
Too complicated with RESearch plugin :(
Thanks!
