Why don't my renamed folders appear in the library module?

I attended Matt's Kozlowski's LR4 seminar a few months ago. He talked about not using dates to organize or name your folders but instead use a meaningful descriptive name.

So at the time of IMPORT, I add the metadata, keywords and rename the folder to something meaningful. (He said the folders could still be found by date.)

So.....on a recent trip to NEW HAMPSHIRE, i did some work, imported files into LR and renamed the files at import into my PICTURES directory on my laptop.

Now that I am home I am exporting as a catalogue but only the dates and not the names I gave for the folders appear in the library module ans subsequently in the EXPORTED catlog folder created..

I must be missing something.

I want to transfer all this work to my main computer but I will just be going back to bad habits using dates to name files.

thanks in advance.
