This excellent little utility (formerly known as File List) can help you rename multiple files at the same time, in just about any way that you can imagine--for example, if you want to name a bunch of photos in a sequence or change some PC files from ugly all caps over to lowercase.

Name Mangler gives you a clean, intuitive interface for numbering sequentially, finding and replacing, changing case, setting extensions, adding prefixes and suffixes, and removing and inserting characters. Name Mangler also offers an Advanced option that lets you define your own renaming rules, combining the standard options and letting you describe new file names as expressions--and the ability to use regular expressions gives you almost limitless possibilities. This app even lets you save configurations as droplets, so you can execute the same set of renaming rules again and again with a simple drag and drop. If you need to frequently rename files, Name Mangler is a good value, and you can try it for free for the first 25 launches.

What's new in version 3.6

  • Added a "Group by" feature to the Sequence action. This can be used to create independent sequence numbers for files in different folders, for example.
  • Single-file sequences can optionally not have any sequence number. (Focus on the "Group by" input field, then choose "Insert Laziness Indicator" from the "Edit" menu.)
  • Title Case conversions can now either keep existing formatting for words shorter than a certain length, or convert them to lowercase.

Developer's Description

Batch file renamer with droplets.

If you need to rename several files at once, this is the application you have always been looking for. Name Mangler is a batch file renamer that supports the following renaming tasks: Find and Replace (including support for regular expressions); Number Sequentially; Change Case; Set Extension; Add Prefix/Suffix; Remove/Insert Characters.

Moreover, you can combine all of these using the Advanced renaming mode, which even comes with some extra features, such as conditional statements, nested counters, and more. But Name Mangler is more than just one versatile renaming utility - it's an infinite number of task-specific renaming utilities: Name Mangler's Droplets make it ridiculously easy to store configurations and use those repeatedly for different, alternating purposes. Just drop your files on them.
