Rename a property of an item, the value of the property is not changed.

      Rename-ItemProperty { [-path] string[] | [-literalPath] string[] }
             [[-name] string[]] [-newName] string
                [-passThru] [-force] [-filter string] 
                   [-include string[]] [-exclude string[]]
                      [-credential PSCredential] [-whatIf]
                         [-confirm] [-UseTransaction] [CommonParameters]

   -Path string
       The path(s) to the item to be renamed. Wildcards are permitted.

   -LiteralPath string
       Like Path above, only the value is used exactly as typed.
       No characters are interpreted as wildcards. If the path includes any
       escape characters then enclose the path in single quotation marks.

   -Name string
       The name(s) of the property to rename.

   -NewName string
       The new name for the property.

       Pass the object created by Rename-ItemProperty along the pipeline. 

       Override restrictions that prevent the command from succeeding, apart
       from security settings.

   -Filter string
       A filter in the provider's format or language. 
       The exact syntax of the filter (wildcard support etc) depends on the provider.
       Filters are more efficient than -include/-exclude, because the provider
       applies the filter when retrieving the objects, rather than having 
       PowerShell filter the objects after they are retrieved.

   -Exclude string
       Omit the specified items from the Path e.g. "*SS64*"
       this only works when the path includes a wildcard character.

   -include string
       Include only the specified items from the Path. e.g. "May*"
       this only works when the path includes a wildcard character.
   -Credential PSCredential
       Use a credential to validate access to the file. Credential represents
       a user-name, such as "User64" or "Domain64\User64", or a PSCredential
       object, such as the one retrieved by using the Get-Credential cmdlet.
       If you type a user name, you will be prompted for a password.

       Prompt for confirmation before executing the command.

       Describe what would happen if you executed the command without actually executing it.

       Include the command in the active transaction.
