Rename a branch with Git


We need to rename a branch using Git.


This works of course only on local branches, but it should be enough.

git branch -m <current_name> <nnew_name>

You don’ need to change branch in order for this to work. Then, if you need to remove the wrongly named branch just use the delete option (-D), as described here.
