Renaming room mailboxes - Just change displayname and add alias?

Can you rename Room mailboxes in Exchange Online?

From what I can tell, all I'd need to do is rename the displayname, and add a primary alias with a new name (keeping the old alias around I guess would be helpful for old cached e-mails..)?Only thing I'm not sure on is if users' existing and recurring meetings would be updated with the new name. I think they'd just need to edit them and update to the "new" name of the location...?
