Java Question: How to refer to an Icon using concatenated Strings?

Here is my problem. I have created many different icon objects, each named with this general format:

<name><direction><number>icon

For example, billdown5icon, steveright2icon, etc.

I want to repeatedly change a JLabel's icon to accomplish a simple animation

So I am trying:

myLabel.setIcon
(name+direction+number+"icon");

But Java is expecting an Icon as the argument, and here I'm giving it a string. I don't want to give it a String, I want to say "use the icon which has this particular name"

Is there an easy way to do this?

Thanks in advance.
