    I have the following folders

    trip to xxx
    folder-temp
    pic-temp
    my-xxx-videos

    I wanna rename all the folders to "my-folders1", "my-folders2" and so on.

    I am using better finder rename but I don't see an option that lets me completely remove any folder name and replace it with something else. Any ideas? thanks

    ps. I already know how the incrementing number work.

    You can create a simple Automator workflow to do that. It allows you to rename files, folders sequentially in batches and also add a prefix to the names.

    I'll post an in-depth tutorial about it on my blog very soon.
