If you did:

svn co <URL> /MyDev

and trunk is a subdirectory of the URL (and thus created by the
checkout), then yes - you can rename MyDev, but trunk is
SVN-controlled and can't be renamed locally. If you locally rename it
(ren trunk mytrunk or mv trunk mytrunk instead of svn mv trunk
mytrunk) then Subversion will see trunk as "missing" and on your next
update, it will be re-created from the repository.
