While mv is first and formost a utility to move files and folders from one location to another, it is also how files and folders get renamed in bash. Bash has no other command for renaming, you just use mv.

To rename a file with mv:

mv filename newfilename

To move a file or folder:

mv /location/of/file /new/location/of/file
