If you made a typo or a similar mistake when naming your new branch, and you want to rename it, is very simple:
svn move http://svn.domain.com/project/branches/old/ http://svn.domain.com/project/branches/new
Remember to switch any working copies of the old branch though:
svn switch http://svn.domain.com/project/branches/new

Thanks this really helped me out! Jarom
I didn’t realize that ‘svn mv’ could be applied to an entire branch. Your post gave me the quick fix I needed.
