Populate custom record name

Hello all,
We have a bunch of custom objects for which we'd like to have relevant record names automatically populated. The auto number option fills the "auto" need, but using numbers makes searching and finding the right record more difficult for users. Are there other options ? Being able to name record based on, for example, the related record name + current month would be awesome. Any help and suggestion will be appreciated.
Thanks !
i would use a custom form for this kind of thing...i don't believe it's possible via the native application.
Thanks for your reply !
Could you explain a little more how a custom form would help out in populating the mandatory "record name" field of a custom objects ?
Thanks again !
