Upto this point it is not possible.
The only way is ti create a new domian and migrate your data.
As for data migration a good tool might be metalogix as it allows you to upgrade 25gb for free.
If you dont mind paying share-gate might also be an option for you.
Finally yiu can always try to call microsodt and escalate the issue depending on how big of a client you are or the agent you might get lucky where they do the rename for you.

Yes, if Microsoft Support for O365 says it cant be done, that means there is not even any back end code that a 3rd party app can run to change it.  You would have to close your subscription and start a new one under a different name to make that change.  O365 support is pretty spot on, I have called them for a few issues and they help quickly and accurately.
