Do you have Continuous selected in the File Numbering setting in the settings menu?

You really need to rename the files anyway because the count only goes to 9,999 and then returns to 1 again. 

 

I have  found the simplest way is also the most effective. I create a folder for each batch of photos. The folder gets a name with date and description like "2015-12-16; Suzy's birthday".   Because each batch goes in its own folder it doesn't matter that they reset and repeat.  When I process the raw files I export them as jpg files to a separate exports file with a similar name and I have Lightroom nalme the images themselves that way like 2015-12-16; Suzy birthday 1 of 16.

Why do so many people say "FER-tographer"? Do they take "fertographs"?
