presumably you mean xfs_repair?

lost+found/ is populated with files for which name data has been lost.
There is no great way to recover the names; if there were, xfs_repair would
do it.

Yes it was a xfs_repair.

The files themselves are not lost, but they have lost their names.

Depending on the data you have in the files, perhaps they are still
recognizable, and could be renamed back to their original locations via
script?

The files are essentially http pages but are thousands of them! Is there any
way to restore the name of the files or is only by their content?
