Giving names to files according to a column list in excel

Is there a way that I can rename a lot of files in a snap? :confused:

Like if I had a list of 300 file names that I would like to apply to 300 excel template files in a folder...

It would be even nicer if I could apply another column to another file detail... say "subject", "year", "category", or "details", etc.
But the Filename is first and foremost...

I want to be able to do it every once and while, because I know live updating would increase difficulty, and probably performance and is just not necessary.
