My quickshot, suitable only for that specific case, would be 'The' -> 'the' and 
then 'the H' -> 'The H'

For more sphisticated solutions, if you are familiar with 'sed', you could try 
out the commandline tool 'rename'. 

Package: rename
Priority: standard
Section: perl
Maintainer: Debian Perl Group <address@hidden>
Architecture: all
Multi-Arch: foreign
Version: 1.00-1
Description: Perl extension for renaming multiple files
 This package provides both a perl interface for renaming files
 (File::Rename) and a command line tool 'rename' which is intended to
 replace the version currently supplied by the perl package.
Homepage: https://metacpan.org/release/File-Rename

The huge advantage over gcmd is that it works recursively (or at least i think 
it does).

Recursive renaming was one thing of the gcmd To Do list from very early days, 
but never got implemented.
