Titling Fiction

Hey, gang!

I'm stuck on the title of a short story and I'm curious, do any of you have unusual ways of generating titles for your stories?

What are some of the things you keep in mind while choosing your title? What's important to you?

I may use some of your responses in Packing Heat if I get enough ideas to carry a whole episode :-)

I use AC Swinburne's poetry as my personal title-o-matic.

Ok, occasionally, I'll use other poets, philosophy quotes, puns, mangled movie titles, or single words that sort of 'sum up' the story, like say, Atone or Reconciled.

I can't say that I'm good at titles, but I enjoy coming up with them. Sometimes a title hits me first and I write a story to suit. ^_^

Sometimes I see a photo that would make a good book cover and that generates a story idea!
