    All the programs listed above say they rename collections (batches or multiple files at once).
    Most seem to be free.

    File Renamer Basic 5.6.2

    Here's one that I have, but have not used in a while, but just tried to do the file renameing incrementing that you require.  I just tried it on my earlier version.  It does it very well.

    See the screen picture below and near the bottom of the screen picture notice "Unique Parameter" that you can add to the end of the file name.  Notice that you can increment each renamed file with a sequential number.  You can click on the picture to download and enlarge it.
