To add some context to this question, I am currently developing an iOS application and need some advise on the interface.

What is the most suitable icon for a 'rename' button?

When this button is pressed, a dialogue appears prompting the user for a new name for the file. As the application also has the ability to edit files, I want to avoid confusion between the two functions.

I am currently struggling to think of anything that would work, so might end up using text instead.

To make it easy to understand, you should simply use the most commonly used "typing cursor icon". (ex: http://www.iconarchive.com/icons/visualpharm/must-have/256/Rename-icon.png). And you may stilize it by apps colors and effects.

Also you may take a look at these articles at the end of this Turkish blog post about "designing an icon."
