I just realized there is no way to rename the S3 bucket form console. Is there any another way I can do that?

Yes, There's no option to rename bucket functionality for S3 because there are technically no folders in S3 so we have to handle every file within the bucket. 

Create a new bucket, copy the contents from the new bucket and delete the old bucket. You can do all these steps in AWS CLI.

Hi,

You can rename your S3 bucket name. Form your AWS CLI run the below commands as shown below.

$ aws s3 mb s3://[new-bucket]
$ aws s3 sync s3://[old-bucket] s3://[new-bucket]
$ aws s3 rb --force s3://[old-bucket]
