See the example below, Git tracks AA.txt, so you must run
git add AA.txt

After a commit, you can tell Git that the file was renamed:
git mv AA.txt Aa.txt
(and then a commit)



------------------------------

user@mac:/tmp/tt2> git init
Initialized empty Git repository in /private/tmp/tt2/.git/
user@mac:/tmp/tt2> echo AAA > AA.txt
user@mac:/tmp/tt2> git add AA.txt
user@mac:/tmp/tt2> git commit -m AA.txt
[master (root-commit) f102760] AA.txt
 1 file changed, 1 insertion(+)
  create mode 100644 AA.txt
  user@mac:/tmp/tt2> echo BB >AA.txt
  user@mac:/tmp/tt2> mv AA.txt  Aa.txt
  user@mac:/tmp/tt2> git status
  On branch master
  Changes not staged for commit:
    (use "git add <file>..." to update what will be committed)
      (use "git checkout -- <file>..." to discard changes in working directory)

        modified:   AA.txt

no changes added to commit (use "git add" and/or "git commit -a")
user@mac:/tmp/tt2> git add AA.txt
user@mac:/tmp/tt2> git status
On branch master
Changes to be committed:
  (use "git reset HEAD <file>..." to unstage)
