Yes, but you could write it into the script, pretty much like you just said:

get the id of the last image
set the name of image id it to "MyFabulousDrawing"

Are you importing a bunch of images? You might want to look at "All Images
In Folder" (Import As Control submenu). That will batch import them all at
once. Then just write a loop to go through them and rename them.
