Once after saving the attachment using save attachment activity we can use MOVE FILE activity to rename the file where in source mention the filepath of the file where it is saved
In destination part mention like this

“Folder path”+”\”+”AEC “+Path.GetFilenamewithoutextension(“Filepath”)+Path.GetExtension(“filepath”)
