Can you rename adult cats?

I'm adopting a pair of 12-year-old cats, and though I'm looking forward to having them live with me I'm not looking forward to having to call them by the names they've had since kittenhood (Braveheart and Fearless.) Braveheart in particular is a decent animal and I hate having to call him after a Mel Gibson movie. I've heard that it's okay to rename adult dogs, even better for them if they lived unhappy lives under their old names, but I'm wondering if this works with cats, since they're such creatures of habit. Having to get used to a totally new environment might be enough to cope with without having to get used to me calling them unfamiliar names.
