Wouldn't recommend doing this in LR... get yourself a tool designed for just that. Personally, I use XYPlorer as an explorer replacement and it has a very advanced file renamer built in that I use often to batch rename.... simple, powerful, quick.

Wouldn't recommend doing it outside of LR ... LR will not be able to load the images after renaming (you can tell LR to look for them, but I don't know if it just looks for file names, in which case that would fail. If so, and you do rename them outside of LR, you will lose all your edits and history.
