I love this topic! A good title not only has to convey the meaning of the story, it also should be poetic and lyrical. A lot of effort goes into these, so there are likely thousands of good choices for this.

Black Alice
His Master's Voice
The Idler's Glossary
Tractacus Logico-Philosophicus
Storms of Silence
Under the Jaguar Sun
The Prosperous Few and the Restless Many
To Be a Pilgrim

My favourite title for anything used to be "A River Runs Through It", but I think that might have been supplanted by "Memories of My Melancholy Whores".

Help! A Bear is Eating Me by Mykle Hanson. the title is what its about, no misrepresentation there.

"Trapped in a remote Alaskan forest, pinned under his own SUV, gnawed upon by nature's finest predators, Marv Pushkin -- Corporate Warrior, Positive Thinker, Esquire subscriber -- waits impatiently for an ambulance and explains in detail the many reasons why this unfolding tragedy is everyone's fault but his own."

My all time favourite title is Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation. I haven't read the book but that title is great.

I agree with you. I guess it doesn't exactly roll on movie viewers' tongues - specially if they are munching popcorn - but It's beautiful and it makes sense on the book. Same as my proposal for best title ever:

Charlotte Sometimes.

While reading this thread, I have realized that I also love titles with this scheme: The xxxx is a xxxx xxxx. The Moon is a Harsh Mistress and The Heart is a Lonely Hunter.
