Hi Arpit,

You can follow the below steps :
1. Write a trigger on Contact object
2. In this trigger query the related account with child contacts in inner query
3. Based on the count of child contacts you can set the name of your current contact. For Eg : currentCon.Name = acc.Name + acc.childContactList.size() + 1;
4. Now update the custom field on the related account with the name of your current contact.

Please let me know if you need more help or information on this.
