Renaming Files

I have a directory with a long list of files. I want to change their names such that
the first letter of the name of the author is capitalised.


I have tried the following command and did not get what I require.


Code:
rename 'y/......[a-z]/......[A-Z]/' *.pdf


Code:

fimgs(1)						      General Commands Manual							  fimgs(1)

NAME
fimgs - poor man's [http://]PostScript/pdf/dvi/cbr/rar/cbz/zip viewer for the linux framebuffer console SYNOPSIS
fimgs [ options ] file DESCRIPTION
fimgs is a simple wrapper script which takes a PostScript or pdf or .cbr or .rar or .cbz or .zip or .dvi or any of the above prefixed with http:// as input, renders the pages using ghostscript into a temporarely directory and finally calls fbi to display them. In case of com- pressed archives (in zip or rar formats), the images are decompressed into a directory and displayed. In this latter case, only images contained in the archive will be displayed (no nested archives or pdf's or ps's or dvi's). OPTIONS
fimgs still does not understand all of fim's options (they are not passed through). so please use fimgs -h to get help on its options. You can use option -p <password> if your PDF file requires password. SEE ALSO
fim(1), gs(1), fbi(1), fbgs(1), bash(1) AUTHOR
