I voted 'no' because when I came up with the name it was with understanding of its imperfection balanced against ease of use, ability to be remembered/written, clarity when Google'ing, and other utilitarian reasons. It's complicated enough as "Akaneiro" - adding more detail, while great for perfectionists, would likely make it harder for the masses to remember/find the game. I wasn't even sure we should go with a foreign word to begin with - but it seems to be working well enough.

Too bad I didn't think of "That one menstrual game" back when the narrative idea first came up :P

People mispronounce a lot of things, not really a big deal.

It's nice to receive comments from the source and know the official details. And given by the current clear majority, your decision stands up to its intention.

I vote no since I have no problem pronouncing it, and I don't see any reason to add a line to the name just because people mispronounce it.

I'm pedantic. I prefer to do and say things correctly when possible.

If I recalled, even the creator didn't pronounce it right in his video on the kickstarter page. lol
He said Ah-kah-neh-ro, as opposed to Ah-ka-neh-ee-ro.

I'm Japanese player.I'm glad if my opinion would be helpful.
Akaneiro meaning is almost the same as madder red.
It is like the sunset colors.
Anyhow,I do not feel uncomfortable say "Akaneiro".
But this is a game of America.Should being easy to understand in English.
