If you did not link your pictures when you inserted them. (Which is
done, by clicking the down arrow next to Insert and selecting Insert
and Link), then your pictures get a numeric name at the time they are
inserted like "Picture 1" or "Picture 2".

To complicate matters further, if you change the layout from Tight to
In Line with Text and then back again, the name gets changed each time
you change the layout.

If you did link the picture, then you can open the Links menu (found
under the edit menu) and see the name of the graphic and where you
have the original stored.

Dawn is correct but her answer does not complete the whole picture. If you
activate the script editor (ALT+SHIFT+F11), each inserted picture has a
reference in the html file displayed that looks like:
<v:imagedata src="Document4_files/image001.jpg" o:title="IMG_0255_1_3"/>
where image001.jpg is the new name for the image and IMG_0255_1_3 is the
original filename without the extension.
You can winkle out the names of your images from the data.

Thanks Graham! I keep forgetting about the Script Editor, probably
because I hardly use it. <smile>

Thanks Graham
You being with a MVP status, may have some say in Microsoft ? When Word is
trying to be a DTP-like program, the task of inserting pictures and linking
should be put together, that is, while inserting picture thru insert menu,
the linking box should also appear. Because neither manuals, nor online help
could understand what I was asking for?

If you click the arrow beside Insert, you have the options to "Link to File"
or "Insert and Link."
