renaming files in one go

hello,
I have a folder with > 500 photos of my daughter, named after the pattern
Hannah 2006-09 kos1.jpg
Hannah 2006-09 mls.jpg
Hannah 2005 01s.jpg
Hannah 2011-07 a2.jpg

I would now like to delete out all over the first 7 letters of the name automatically ("Hannah ") and rename all 500 in one go.
does anyone know how to do it via a batch file or a script or a tool ?
(for Windows XP 32)

thank you very much!
I took the Bulk RenameUtility, it works fine!

At least in Win7 you can actually just select everything, press F2 and input a name and it will name every file that and append "(x)" where x is a counter. It doesn't offer a lot of flexibility, but it works.

thx, but with XP it doesn't work like I needed it.
