I'm trying to change the "name" of a sharepoint document library (not the title). I have found a way to do it from sharepoint designer: What I need is to do this programmaticaly. How do I do that?

Use method SPFolder.MoveTo for this purpose.

Example code:

SPList list = web.Lists["Important Items"];

P.S. Tested, works as expected.
