I have the following folders

trip to xxx
folder-temp
pic-temp
my-xxx-videos

I wanna rename all the folders to "my-folders1", "my-folders2" and so on.

I am using better finder rename but I don't see an option that lets me completely remove any folder name and replace it with something else. Any ideas?

I already know how the incrementing number work.

You can 'completely remove any folder name and replace it with something else' using the Completely rename action, available from Advanced & Special:

This feature simply renames a file to the new name specified above. This is useful in combination with the droplet feature.

Maybe it's easier to open Terminal, go the the parent folder and run

i=0
for f in *; do
    if [[ -d "$f" ]]; then
        mv "$f" my-folders$i
        ((i=i+1))
    fi
done
