Column and Row values for polygons in a shapefile

How can I attribute individual polygons in a shapefile with row and column numbers so that each polygon will have its own unique combination of column and row values. Examples of shapefile types could be a simple fishnet grid, or something less regular like the counties in a state.

 

Right now my attribute table looks something like this:

Polygon
A

B

C

 

I'd like the resulting attribute table to look something like this:

PolygonColumnRow
A11
B12
C21
D22
E31

 

 

*Edited to change "label" to "attribute"
