Relatively newbie to ascripting and need help with a repeat problem.

The following script works but it continuously adds the adds the text to the filename as shown in screenshot so I guess somewhere I'm missing something.

here's the script . . .

on adding folder items to this_folder after receiving these_items

repeat with i from 1 to number of items in these_items
tell application "Finder"

set this_item to item i of these_items

set theFileName to the name of this_item
set thenewName to the (theFileName & "test") as string
set the name of this_item to thenewName

end tell
end repeat
end adding folder items to

Thanks in advance for any help
