Using Object Index to Rename (or multiply)

I seem to remember seeing a handy tip once, about using an objects index value, for instance when selecting multiple objects like a joint chain, that you could then go into the object name box and do something like:

newName+'val' or

newName+(index)

or some such to get a convention like

newName0
newName1
newName2

Would be useful in randomizing things as well. Am I crazy or can someone remind me how to do this?

The only way I know to do it is with the Renaming Tool (pre-R17 Studio version>Character menu) or in R17 with the Naming Tool (Tools menu).

Any way to get the naming tool to name iteratively?

Yes, but I don't recall how it works. It's in the help docs.
