git rename local branch

git branch -m <oldname> <newname> # Any Branch
git branch -m <newname> # Current Branch

# For windows if you get "Branch already exists" error
git branch -M <newname># Rename the local branch to the new name
git branch -m <old_name> <new_name>

# Delete the old branch on remote - where <remote> is, for example, origin
git push <remote> --delete <old_name>

# Or shorter way to delete remote branch [:]
git push <remote> :<old_name>

# Push the new branch to remote
git push <remote> <new_name>

# Reset the upstream branch for the new_name local branch
git push <remote> -u <new_name>
git branch -m <new_name>git branch -m <oldname> <newname>
$ git checkout Branch-Name-You-Want-to-Change
$ git branch -m New-Branch-Namegit branch -m <newname>
