What do you mean 'replace'?  Are you wanting to physically rename the tables?

If you do, what about all the constraints/indexes/foreign keys on them?

if you are interested only in your tables, then you can query USER_TABLES :

SELECT TABLE_NAME FROM USER_TABLES ;

if you are interested in all your tables + any tables on which you have got privileges, then use the below :

select table_name from ALL_tables ;

select table_name from ALL_tables where OWNER = 'SCOTT' ; -- to find only those which are owned by SCOTT user by you have privileges on them. change SCOTT to your user name accordingly.

If you are interested to find all table names in the database, then you can query DBA_TABLES

select table_name from DBA_tables where owner ='TEST_USER';  -- change test_user to actual user name

select table_name from ALL_tables ;
