You will want them in a list so you can iterate over that list and make
changes as necessary. The files do not need to be opened to change their
names. Look into some of the modules under os, like listdir, rename,

You could use the re module which will allow you to match a specific
pattern and split up the filename and store different pieces to be
recalled later.
