Hi @Alvin Leroy Steagall ,

There are multiple options to do this and @KAGITHALA BABU ANVESH already showed you the quickest one without any extra apps. 

However, if you find that you need to perform this label renaming more often – say because users mis-spell labels or keep reusing the old ones – there is an app that makes the whole process a lot easier. It's called Project Labels and allows you to rename, merge and even completely remove labels.

Finally, if you just want to get an idea of the amount of labels in your instances: This article got you covered:

Hope that helps,

Full disclosure: I work for Jodocus, the Marketplace Partner behind Project Labels. Let me know if you need any help getting started or have any questions or feedback.

Thank you very much
