I am pretty sure this should work on the newest patch, since I have done it latley (but I would recomend making a backup just to be safe).
What you need to do, is go into your diablo 2 save directroy, and manually copy each of the files of your saved character. So for example, if I wanted to rename Zyion to Bob, I would
copy zyion.d2s bob.d2s
copy zyion.map bob.map
copy zyion.ma0 bob.ma0
.. so on and so on
Then, I would load up the trainer at -> http://damsgp2.com/d2/, open up bob.d2s, and use the re-name feature to change his name to Bob, doing this you should keep your old character, and your old maps/quests/etc.
I have found this very usefull when trying to decide at lvl 20, do I want to put points into this skill? or this skill? =) I do not agree with online cheating at all, so please dont use the program for such things.
