Get[ ] and Put[ ] take the file name as a string.  String manipulation is
quite easy, for example:

In[25]:= Table[StringJoin["foo.", ToString[index]], {index, 5}]

Out[25]= {foo.1, foo.2, foo.3, foo.4, foo.5}

In[26]:= InputForm[%]

Out[26]//InputForm= {"foo.1", "foo.2", "foo.3", "foo.4", "foo.5"}
