Yes you can change the name ... you will also need to change.
1. The tmp and logs paths in the configuration.php
2. If you have edited # RewriteBase / (in .htaccess) then you need to edit that path too.

Basically treat changing the folder name the same as if you were moving Joomla to another folder. ... irectories
