how to parse the raster name into a table in model builder or python

I need help to finish a task.

I am trying to use model builder to simplify a task with Zonal Statistics as Table. I have temperature and precipitation *. bil files in their folders.  Problem with model builder is that I have to generate two toolboxes. One for temperature and one for precipitation. Now I am trying with temperature. 

I am using the iterate rasters to read the rasters, but I wanted to use the Name to fill a new field that I want to create in the table created with the Zonal Statistics. But I don't manage to do it.  I am using a polygon of municipalities as feature zone data and the rasters as Input value display.

Can somebody help me with tips? I will appreciate it. I would like to have a table  like this.  By now I am able to get a table by dataset (one for temperature (tm), one for precipitation (rr)), but no raster name yet and not a merge table either.



I am attaching the model builder example also. 

I was also trying some python, but I don't manage to add the name to the table either on Python. I was generating a listraster but I am new to python and do now how to add the rasters name in the table.  Here is the python example also attached.

I've not really checked your script for errors but I guess it works (also if you want to share code in the future, add it as code formatted text - screenshots of code are awful to deal with)

If it works, you're creating a table in each for loop - so add a new field (TEXT) to the table Add Field (Data Management)—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

then calculate field for all rows in the table (as you may have more than one zone I guess) - Calculate Field (Data Management)—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

you can use the inRaster  variable as it's a string of your raster name (I think?) i.e. expression = inRaster

Thanks for your reply and help. Yes, I will next time attach the script as text. I manage to workaround the model builder. I haven't tried it just as plain python script, but I will.  I am attaching the model I was using. I was creating a clean table with the same attributes from the table generated in the zonal statistics (including the new attribute, name of the raster). And I was appending each calculation to that table.
