Ahh, the joy of titles.... actually, one of the best I ever came across (which I then unblushingly stole for a story) was for a Societ novel (I never read it, it was mentioned in a popular history book I was researching)... At Three O'Clock After The War.

And I really REALLY want to call something Nil Carborundum simply because I love it.

I find it easier to start with the title and figure out the rest of the book from there :)
