Rename a field/property without losing existing data

I have seen a similar question on the forum, but I do not see a resolution. Is there a way for me to preserve my existing data without losing it when I rename my field/property.

For example, I have a collection type with a field: SectionContent, but the business own wants it to be: Content. I did exactly that and I lost all the existing data. I have to manually re-entered the entire collection content. I do not mind a work around, but this is not very efficient.

Please help.
