Well, I suppose you *could* do e.g.


for _src in "${source[@]}"; do

But I don't think it is usually worth attempting to automate this. It's
a lot easier in basically every respect to just bite the bullet and
rename them manually. Or rely on the order of the source array itself.

TBH I am still not entirely sure what you are trying to accomplish.
