declare @No integer
set @No = 1

while @No <= 50
begin
  insert into table1(ItemNo, name)
  select 'A_1' + cast(@No as varchar), 'some text'
  set @No = @No + 1
end

U could also take a look at SqlBulkCopy, which is quite fast.

You can try CTE.
declare @table as table (StartValue int, EndValue int)
insert into @table values (1,10) -- change this number to required value
;with CTE as (
select StartValue,EndValue from @table union all
select StartValue+1,EndValue from CTE where StartValue+1 <= EndValue)
select 'A_'+CONVERT(varchar,StartValue) ItemNo,'some text' name 
  from CTE
/*
ItemNo	name
A_1	some text
A_2	some text
A_3	some text
A_4	some text
A_5	some text
A_6	some text
A_7	some text
A_8	some text
A_9	some text
A_10	some text
*/
