A faster way?

I have the answer, but I want a better answer...
I want a file name that is "test" plus the time of day.
Here is what I came up with.  Is there a better way, like with only one line?

$result = mysql_db_query("main","SELECT CURTIME()+0");
$row = mysql_fetch_row($result);
$fname = "test" . $row[0];

BONUS: I want to come up with a file name that is unique for each query.  I cannot use TEMPORARY.  I am thinking of setting up a file with a number in it, and incrementing each time it is used.  Then using the name "test" . $counter.  Is there a better way?
