You could add a new column and type in that suffix, for example, column B, (type it in B1, in this case) and then drag the bottom right cell square down for as long as your data is. Then, if your original data was in column A, you could type =concatenate( in C1 then press and hold Ctrl, and click A1 and B1.
Then, just drag down the bottom right cell square on C1 for as long as the data is again.
Hope it helps
