To rename a branch in Git we should use the git branch command followed by -m option.
git branch -m new-branch
git branch -m old-branch new-branch
git push origin --delete <old-branch>
git push origin -u <new_branch>
Or you can use an alternative way:
git push --set-upstream origin new_branch # Push the new branch, set local branch to track the new remote
