I have a data set that I got with some oddball names like PyrexIA or

lowercase.  Is there an easy way to do this via a foreach loop and a simple
command, or do I have to
rename PyrexIA pyrexia
rename CuTaneousDA cutaneousda

I looked at the lower function but that seems to operate on variables rather
than names.
-findit renvars-

There are a couple of versions; choose the dm88 version by both Cox and Weesie. Then do something like

renvars PyrexIA CuTaneousDA, lower
