If you had watched the trailer you would know what its official name is. But since you haven't I will tell you. The official name is Lunar: The Eternal Sapphire.
Eternal Sapphire is not a game, it is going to be a movie. I don't have the knowledge in Action Script to make a RPG in Flash. Even if I did, if I were to make the series of episodes into one game the file size would be huge.

It's a dale, it's windy. After a while people might start calling the place Winddale. Or if you like the language to evolve, it might become Windale because humans are inherently lazy and tend to slur things together when given half the chance. (The double "d" sound would get reduced to a single "d.")
The problem with Kokoro is that it could have pulled the player out of the game. Someone could be enjoying a nice European-based fantasy setting and then wonder what a Japanese name is doing there. Lunar pulls its heritage from medieval European fantasy, so the majority of names should fit the setting. They don't have to be real-world European, but they should feel like they could be.
Yeah it seems that everyone likes Winddale over Kokoro.
When I complete the first episode I am going to edit my first post and put the link there, just thought I would let everyone know ahead of time.
