Pein is the direct romaji translation, but it's really Pain, which is befitting for his character and confirmed as Pain in the databook.

Yes, Pain is correct.
Scanlators simply left his name in romanji instead of translating it properly, which lead to the Pein/Pain confusion.

Kishi wrote "Pein" in Katakana (which is used for foreign words) so he meant "Pain" in English. "Pein" would just be the direct romaji translation but translated to English is "Pain" so whichever one you use people are going to understand. :)

the "E" in japan is pronouced as "eh". in japan, if pein was spelled with an "a" instead of an "e" it would sound like "pine"
