Display image file name next to the image

I'm really new to AutoCAD and basically know only a few basic functions, but I have this project to finish and I'd like some help.


I have about 150 photos loaded into my drawing and scaled in order to perform measurements on them. I'd like to have file names of the images displayed next to the images. Is there a way to automatically display file names for all the images, so I don't have to do it by hand? 


These are photos of microfossils and the all look pretty similar, so telling them apart visually is often a problem.

With FIELD / OBJECT / Click on your Image / Option "Name", you will get the Name of your Image

and you can place it anywhere ...


In fact you need a Lisp/VLisp routine to automatize the process and place for example the Name below

at xx.xx units with a size of xx.xx units ... (Rotation = 0 , I imagine)
