convmv

http://j3e.de/linux/convmv/
'convmv' converts filenames (not file content), directories, and even whole filesystems to a different encoding. This comes in very handy if, for example, one switches from an 8-bit locale to an UTF-8 locale. It has some smart features: it automagically recognises if a file is already UTF-8 encoded (thus partly converted filesystems can be fully moved to UTF-8) and it also takes care of symlinks. It can also convert from normalization form C (UTF-8 NFC) to NFD and vice-versa.
