Safely changing fieldnames

When I google for "Filemaker safely changing fieldnames" I mainly get instructions on how to. But what I would like to know is whether I can simply safely do it in the first place.

Can I go to Manage database > Tables > Field, select a field, change it, save it and will my filemaker solution continue to function without any problems?

I tested it and it does. But I still find it scary and would like to double check with you.

Are there any corners where I should be watching out? I don't use 3rd party plugins and it is a single fmp12 file.

Thanks for the reply.

Regards, Thomas.
