Require data from Excel sheet to be assigned to specific meshes that already have "IDs" that are linked in the Excelsheet

We are currently trying to get large amounts of data from Revit into 3Dmax, getting it in isn't a problem however the naming system is not great.

when the meshes comes in they all have individual ID's as mesh names (not mat id or obj id) just mesh name. this ID is assigned in Revit along with several other pieces of information available such as area / volume / tags etc..

what we ideally wanted was to just export the mesh from Revit with these fields in the mesh name but currently we can not achieve this.

So what I am asking is if I have a mesh with an ID, this ID is also in an excel sheet, can i link certain bits of information to this mesh? Ideally just want the mesh to be called by it's 2D Area. in future i want to experiment with more "fields of info" and extract them later on for other uses...

we are happy to pay for this script if one can be produced quickly, and something we can re-use with ease...
