Automate renaming a board using variable for "next month" name?

Hello Trello community!

I'm a little lost about variables, and wondering if there's a way to automate the following task:

I have Zapier copying a board named MONTHLY TASKS template (although it is not a template, as I am on a free account).

When the new board is created, Zapier changes the name to: THIS MONTH

Is there any command/rule that I can create in Trello to auto rename the board to the next month's name? For instance if it were created today, the board title would change from THIS MONTH to MARCH TASKS.

Thanks for any insights!!

@Cindy Johnson you can't trigger a Butler command on board creation, because Butler rules need to be added to each board after it has been created, however you can use date variables in Zapier to name the board correctly:
