My 2c: get php for it.

You may do it with SQL functions to get the date month, year etc and
than concatanete them (again using SQL functions). At least it is
possible in Sybase and MS SQL Server. However, this means that you are
injecting some unnecessary business logic to your database layer.

Although it is debatable, mixing business tier and data tier is
generally not a good practice.
