Default Baldr Force and Simulacrum?

The machines in Baldr Force are called シュミクラム, but the closest English word to that was simulacrum, which would've been シミュラクラム. An online source hypothesizes that it was intentionally misspelled to give the air of language degradation in the future, but I was wondering are there any (European) languages where simulacrum would be pronounced more like shumicrum?

Knowing Baldr Force, personally I'd hypothesise that it's シュミ as in 変な趣味 and クラム as in クラム・チャウダー...

Well, for shumi part, シミュレーション and the inaccurate シュミレーション are jumbled up in Japanese language. I myself am confused sometimes. I guess they omitted la to sound better to audience as an Japanised word.

In a nutshell, I'd hypothesise it's missconversion of shampoo cream.
