You can't rename a list (beyond changing the case of the letters in the
public name - you should not change any more or it will break things).
However, you can use mailman's bin/list_members script to enumerate all
the members of a list, and then use the bin/add_members script to
populate a new list with those members.

'~mailman/list_members --help' and '~mailman/add_members --help' will
tell you how they're each used.  Note that you'll need to put the
regular and the digest member lists in separate files (or run in
separate passes, if you just pipe the commands together) if you want to
preserve that status.
