"Kirby's Return to Dream Land" is the name of the game in North America, while "Kirby's Adventure Wii" is the name of the game in Europe (including UK) and Australia.
The question is whether by "English name" we mean the UK name or the US name (this problem occurs for many other games as well). The ideal would be a system to store both names or even more (French name, English name (Europe/PAL), English Name (NA/NTSC), Japanese name, etc.)

Wouldn't it be easier to have a in the name with both options?
My game is also named Kirby: Return to Dreamland

For the time being, and to be consistent with how VGR currently handles games with the same problem (ex: Jet Set Radio / Jet Grind Radio) we should probably still use Kirby's Return to Dream Land as the "English" name for the game.

I think we must do this when a game have 2 titles in English depending of the region
Kirby’s Adventure Wii / Kirby’s Return to Dream Land

= With this solution, the search engine will work for everyone

I agree that listing both names makes it easier for everyone to find their games (Cyberscore chose this solution too). However this also means that now many games have to be renamed: looking at VGR Kirby games only, 6 of them have two English names:
Kirby's Ghost Trap / Kirby's Avalanche
Kirby's Fun Pak / Kirby Super Star
Kirby: Power Paintbrush / Kirby: Canvas Curse
Kirby: Mouse Attack / Kirby: Squeak Squad
Kirby's Adventure Wii / Kirby's Return to Dream Land
Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush / Kirby and the Rainbow Curse
