NameChanger is quite intuitive and easy to use - recommended!

The free built-in tool Small Automator iconAutomator can also do file renaming, but doesn't seem to allow for regular expressions..

no way to do uppercase to lowercase and not enough options for other things

I'm going back to using my virtual machine in windows to get the job done with a windows app

about NameChanger and Filewrangler Feb 2012

With Name Changer you get for free....
Fewer complicated options
Faster speeds
Easy to use interface

I used to be a big fan of Name Mangler, and wasn't too displeased with File Wrangler but when I upgraded to Snow Leopard both these developers tried to force me to buy/pay again for software they continue to provide for free to people using 10.5. We shouldn't be penalized.

Thank you Name Changer
