Apply a new name to a folder based on its old name, read from a list

Using Powershell, is there a way to read from a directory all the folder (folder names), save them to an Excel file, in Excel, and in an adjacent column, provide a new Folder name, and then via the script, apply the new name based onto the folder, based on its old name.

Your thoughts are appreciated.

oBdA assumes you want to rename subfolders too. If you only want to do for top-level folders below a folder, just remove -Recurse from the CSV generating command.
