Well, in case anyone else is looking for this I'll answer my own question. It seems that the following property in persistence.xml will do the trick:
Replace the value with the class that implements your naming strategy. I haven't tested this yet but I believe it does work.
here is the property that i found. so far it appears to be working well.
i just added this to the persistence.xml file
<property name="hibernate.ejb.naming_strategy" value="org.hibernate.cfg.DefaultComponentSafeNamingStrategy"/>
