To rename an article:

  1. Click the move tab at the top of the article.
  2. Fill in the new article name and the reason for the rename.
  3. Click Move page.

This moves the content of the article and of its talk page (and its edit history) to the new title and changes the old article to a redirect to the new article.

Do not copy and paste content from an old article into an empty new article; this loses all of the edit history.
