An excel cell 'contains' a jpg shape. When I duplicate that cell how do I get the shape name for the newly duplicated shape?

My Worksheet contains a row of cells in which different shapes have been added to some (not all)  specific columns. (Their purpose is that clicking each shape provides access to different vba procedures).

Some cells in the row contain comments, but cells with an added shapes do NOT contain comments

Shapes are added via excel Shapes.AddPicture Method

When a Shape is added to a cell, Shape.name (eg 'Picture16') is recorded to enable control of visibility, and shape deletion.

Now I copy the row of shapes to a new row on the same sheet. How do I enumerate the shapes collection to obtain the shape.names for each identified cell that contains a newly copied shape?
