Advice on renaming photo files with EXIF data

BasarBasar IstanbulRegistered User regular

I am trying to clean up my photo archive from early 2000s. I had over 15000 photos and managed to get it down to around 5000 after removing all the blurry ones as well as pointless ones (!) which were taken before having too many photos was considered a problem : )

Of the 5000 photos, 99% of them have Date Taken exif value. I see there are many desktop programs which can rename the files through exif data. I am wondering if anyone has any experience about them?

Ideally I would like to rename them in the following format.

Current Name: IMG5932.JPEG
EXIF Data Taken: 5/10/2003
Desired Name: May 5th 2003 001.JPEG

So for example if there's another photo in that folder taken on the same day, it would be named: May 5th 2003 002.JPEG.

Any help would be appreciated.
