agree  Kurt Hammond: I'm guessing the asker wants to name a product "Akorbi" and need to make sure it doesn't have bad connotation in Japanese. We should ask ourselves if there is anything in Japanese like アコビ or アコービ or アコビー (which there isn't)

neutral  Katalin Horváth McClure: If Kurt is right, I would mention "akubi" which sounds similar, and means "yawn".
