I think you should use whichever you prefer to use.
It's common for international students to use an Anglicised version of their name when in the UK. In particular it seems common in students from Hong Kong, but other people do it too. I can think of at least four people off the top of my head who do this, and their 'English' name actually bears no resemblance to their 'real' name. I don't think that people would think you are trying to mislead them at all, especially as you are literally using the English translation
That said, while I think it is very selfless of you, I don't think you should feel pressured to make accommodations for people. The pronunciation of your name may be difficult at first for people unfamiliar with it, but I think that a small amount of effort is the very least amount of respect that you deserve.
Totally up to you, and neither option would be in any way unusual or give people impressions about what you are trying to hide.
Either way Rain is a very pretty name
