What's doing this to my image names?

I was sorting pictures and ran across a number of them with "3.48.09 AM" appended to the file name, as in "IMG_0001 3.48.09 AM.JPG" and it isn't limited to JPG's - it appears on PSD'd and PNG's and NEF's and every kind of image.

It's always the same, "3.48.09 AM" , so it doesn't appear to be related to me doing anything with them at a specific time of day.

I tried trolling through the internet with Google and couldn't find an answer.

This is a MacBook Pro M1 and I use Photoshop and Lightroom, but if they caused it, they aren't doing it anymore.

Any ideas? I hate when something fiddles with my files without warning me.

Re: What's doing this to my image names?

I could very easily add fixed name/parameter in Capture One export file name. I believe, that in Lightroom you can do it too. So you probably add it by mistake in the past.

But the OP said it happened to NEF's as well and those cannot be exports

Sounds like you have set a custom filename in camera.

It's Photoshop.  Not sure what switch I clicked, but it added ti to a file this morning, so I know where to look.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions.  I appreciate the help.
