"Mafuu" in Japanese functions as a pretty menacing name (both because of its meaning and because of the way it sounds). "Maph" is simply bad localization, as it sounds more like someone pronouncing the word "math" incorrectly than the name of a fearsome dark magic tome.

"Imhullu" is a brilliant localization because it carries over both the menacing sound and the meaning of demonic/divine wind from the original. The only downside to it is that the meaning of "Imhullu" in English is way less obvious than the meaning of "Mafuu" in Japanese, but a perfect one-on-one localization isn't really possible here; they ended up going with the best they could have done.

So Imhullu is definitely a better name in English.

I prefer Imhullu as well. Sounds like some Internet slang word or abbreviation lmao.
