I'd try to get to the root of WHY they hated their name first. Both of my boys have names with a lot of significance attached to them, so it wouldn't be easy for me to just let them toss their given names aside. I'd probably tell them that others could call them whatever they wanted, but that as their MOTHER I was still calling them by their given name, and that if they still felt the same way when they turned 18, then they could legally change it.
