Well, Jumpman is nearly never going to be confused with Mario's actual name. Nintendo hasn't slapped that name on him in over 30 years.
Even trivia-obsessive like we (yes, it's proper English) don't call Mario 'Jumpman', nor associate the name heavily with Mario's identity. It's just a piece of trivia, and I think it's a pretty great title to sum up the game as: Super Mario.
The name might be extended another day to 'Project Jumpman' or 'Super Jumpman', but I'd rather wait until later in actual development before seeing if it needs a longer name.
Or, I'll end up just polling for it.
The other alternative names are:
Super Mario Dream (plot-related)
Super Mario Magic (theme-related)
Super Mario Limbo (plot-related)
Super Mario Carnival (theme-related)
Super Mario Story (story is a major focus of the game)
SML4/SMB5/SMW3: Hat Trick
SML4/SMB5/SMW3: Caprio's Hour
It's Mr. Video Himself! (Mario's original original name, in a 1920's title vibe)
(The game is taking shape into a mostly 1920's theme, but I haven't really shown much of it besides the new logo stuff. The main villain is a magician as well, so magic tricks and cards and carnivals will be heavily present.)
