Autofill date in file name

I'm running a model and I do this on a daily basis with data that changes on the day.  I would like to be able to have Arc automatically fill in the date in the filename with just a DDMMM (Day Month) or something similar in the file name, instead of me manually editing the six output files in model builder prior to running it. 

 

Essentially I would like the file to look like "example_16SEP.shp" today, and tomorrow it would say "example_17SEP.shp" as the output.

 

Is this a thing I can do in Arc?  I'm sure there's a script somewhere, I just can't seem to find it!

 

Thanks!
