I agree it depends on the situation. If it was a newborn then I would probably change it but use the original first name as the middle name. An older child I would keep the name unless they wanted to change it. I used to nanny for 4 little girls all adopted--3 from China and 1 from Cambodia. Their parents used their first names as middle names and picked new first names: Lucy Fu Yan, Clara Yang, Cecilia Du Wei, Sophina Vita (nn Sophie).
