If all you want to do is change the name of the list, I would always do
this by renaming (or copying) the lists/oldname directory as that
preserves the list settings and the member options which isn't done if
you create a new list and add the old members.

On the other hand, if you have some reason for wanting to start fresh
with default list settings and default member options, then creating a
new list might be preferable.
