How can I easily export/print many emails to pdf?

I have a metric tonne of email. I am slowly transitioning to a less-paper (not paperless) office. Previously I had been printing emails to dead trees and posting them in client files, since many eyes see the physical files so it made sense for continuity.
Anyways, I have stopped that practice and now save my emails by printing to PDF (I use gmail and thunderbird). The default file name for every print to PDF program I have tried is usually just the email subject (or less helpfully, the browser window title, if using gmail).
I find it most helpful to have more information in the file name. Its a bit of a pain to have to manually write in most of the information, but more importantly for some files I want to go back and archive all the previous emails to PDF.
There must be a simpler way! I just want the ability to print or export to PDF in an automatic format something like " .pdf".
