Kea expects the tables to match exactly with the provided schema. There 
is no way to tell Kea to use a differently named table. And there won't 
be. Implementing such a thing would be asking for troubles. It would
be very easy to misconfigure it and also it would break down in some
non-obvious ways.

As others have suggested, please read section 4 of the Kea ARM.
The kea-admin tool uses schema scripts in 
src/share/database/scripts/{mysql,pgsql,cql} to create the schema. You 
may take a look at the
schema files if you want to understand the internals.

You may take a look at those.
