You'll probably need to write your own, making use of existing code. Train
your system to recognise a selected number of people and then try to match a
model (just one possibility among a few) to faces in that image. Active
shape (ASM) and appearance models (AAM) come to mind.
Once a match is said to have been found, pipe that name/s and rename the
file/s accordingly. I can envision the way it should be implemented, but I
don't know of any free (Open Source) implementation of face recognition
algorithms. In the case of still photos, you might need to do some global
search as well as more localised and refined search.
Hope it helps,
