How can I search only for files with long names and automatically change the names?

    I have a large folder (about 100GB) containing thousands of files that I want to place into my MS OneDrive account so I can access it from all of my devices. The problem is that many of these files have long file names that do not follow correct naming conventions and when they are being saved to OneDrive it stops synching when it reaches some of these oddly named files. Is there something I can do in OS X to search for any file name above a certain number of characters and automatically truncate the file name?
