I came across this article that I thought was interesting...

So much goes into a perfect title!

Here are a few that stood out to me:

Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice could have been First Impressions.

Leo Tolstoy's epic War and Peace could All's Well that Ends Well.

Jacquelin Susann's Valley of the Dolls could have been They Don't Build Statues to Businessmen.

F Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby went through a number of possible titles like: Trimalchio in West Egg; Among Ash-Heaps and Millionaires; On the Road to West Egg; Under the Red, White, and Blue; Gold-Hatted Gatsby; and The High-Bouncing Lover.

Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf was originally going to be titled Four and a Half Years of Struggle Against Lies, Stupidity and Cowardice.

George Orwell had wanted to call 1984, The Last Man in Europe but his publishers nixed it.

Tomorrow Is Another Day was the working title of Gone With the Wind, and that’s not the only change we’re grateful for: up until the very last second, Scarlett was named ‘Pansy.’ Bullet dodged.
