Rename Files in array

Hi Experts,

I am new to Unix i wrote below code to rename if the file size less than 8MB.

I might have more than one file to rename sometimesSmilie.
Please help me in writing the code for multiple files.

Eg:- 071720112200.file001 and 071820112200.file001

Single File code
#Rename File script if the file is belongs to GMNA and size is less than 8 MB
#Original file 071520112200.file001
#Moving to A071520112200.file001
a=`ls -l *file001* |awk '{print $5}'`
File=`ls -l *file001* |awk '{print $9}'`

if [ "$a" -le "8388608" ]
then mv $File A$File

           [ ! -f "$file" ] && continue # not regular file
           case "$file" in
                 A*)  continue ;;  # already moved ?
           [ -f  "$newname" ] && continue  # already exist
