Is it possible to change a field name via a script

I have a situtation where we have several field names that have been created as generic placeholders (Custom 01, Custom 02, Custom 03, etc.). These generic field names are used in several scripts and caluations to make the database dynamic for multiple uses. This works great. However, when reports are generated these generic names are used to create the columns on the excel reports. Is there anyway I could write a script to change/update these generic names in the databse to a more specific name for the current use of the that field (i.e. "Custom 01" changed to "T-Shirt Size"? I hope I am making sense. Thanks for your responses!
