If you want to put one number in a symbol, you can use [makefilename]

[makefilename Number%d]

I think you can also use %s in the makefilename pattern to put symbols 
into a string, and you can use "set" messages to chain makefilenames 
together.  makefilename is a Pd internal.

If you want to turn a list of symbols and floats into a symbol, then 
there is [list2symbol] in the zexy library.

list of stuff to join
  |         symbol to put between them at the join
  |         |

If the left inlet is "list a 2 c" and the right inlet is "symbol -" then 
the outlet gives "symbol a-2-c".
