If there is a certain pattern to the names, you can iterate it using a glob or globIterator/RegexIterator or DirectoryIterator with a filter.
I'd suggest a glob; changing things during an iteration doesn't tend to be favourable, so dumping into an array with glob and traversing that with a foreach and renaming each item found in that array would be safe.
