re naming fonts

Good Morning;

Can you teach me how to rename fonts?

Here is my "challenge"..often times, a designer names the font, 123jj 2 inch. That isn't very helpful to me when I am searching through my fonts looking for one to go with my current project.
What I normally would do is:
save the zip file under fonts (I have a seperate folder for bx fonts).
Rename the folder, i.e. Snow fonts.jj(designere designation).
Extract the sizes, etc and now, when I search, I am looking for Snow fonts 1 inch, two inch, etc.

I tried saving a bx font to my external drive and renaming it there before I opened it in Embrillance. ( I did not have the Embrillance program open). Smart that Embrillance is, it went and opened and saved the new bx fonts, but under the original 123jj type name.

So. how can I rename once they are in AlphaTricks?
Or, how can I not have them import until I have set them up in my external drive name catagories?
