Like hiruthesvior said his is name is Yagami Raito

and like BBoy-LiLBorn said Raito(Japanese)=Light(English)

and Kira means Light also

which is called because kira is pronounced kila so it sounds like killer and since he kills people the police named him that

Kira does not mean killer it just sounds like that in japanese...

The author of the manga specifically said that it was "Light".

Japanese pronounces "R" as "L", so the Japanese pronounce "Raito" as "Lai-To".
"Lai-To" and "Light" rhymes therefore English version subbed it as "Light".

If the message wasn't entirely clear... his name is Light Yagama (well, Yagami Light in eastern order). "Raito" is simply a phoenetic spelling of the Japanese pronunciation of "Light," with an R replacing the L.

Japanese people can't pronounce their L's, they replace their L with R.
Like, Herro (Hello)
Or Rorrer coaster xD (Roller coaster)

I'm Japanese, so I know, but I can pronounce my L's perfectly.
