AutoLISP: Block Name to MultiLeader

The routine illustrated below is from Alan Thompson found HERE at CADTutor.

This routine lets you select a block and place a multileader that contains the name of the block. The arrowhead or leader point is automatically placed at the block’s insertion point. So if you would like to change the placement, you can do so afterwards.

Block Name Label

Please refer to the above link of the source where Alan posted the code for any questions or comments and also giving him a “thank you” in regards to the routine.

    Is there a way to do the opposite of this lisp? That is, create and name a block based on its label (plain text with a leader)? [the block name is also followed by a postscript]. i have about a thousand of these to do, each w/ a different name. You could save me dozens of manhours of tedium!
