What is a good GUI file renamer that takes files from command line URIs?

Looking for a GUI mass file renamer that can be run from a selection of files in Nemo. Nemo has a built-in placeholder for a mass rename tool so you can provide the name of the app to run to rename multiple files. The files selected are passed as URIs on the command line.

I have looked at pyrenamer, gprenamer and neither seem to accept a list of files from the command line.

Anyone know of any?

I have found the solution from this link. Thunar file manager has a bulk rename tool. I feel it is simple and easy to use compared to other bulk renamers.

Step 1

sudo apt-get install thunar

Step 2

Open Nemo Preferences dialog from Edit menu and navigate to Behavior tab. Scroll down to the bottom of the menu and add the following command as the Command to invoke when renaming multiple items:

thunar --bulk-rename
