Any suggestions for a title for a short story about To Kill a Mockingbird?

I need to write a short story about To Kill a Mockingbird characters, so I chose Scout and Cal and I'm having trouble coming up with a good title.

This is an interesting assignment, and I know coming up with a title to rival the excellent To Kill a Mockingbird will be challenging. Not knowing what your story is about makes it even tougher to arrive at a title. You may want to focus on Scout's tomboy, unladylike tendencies, and use a variation of those words in the title ("Cal Tames the Tomboy," for example). You may also consider using Scout's last name, Finch, in a play on the mockingbird title ("A Finch Never Gives an Inch" or "A Finch in Overalls"). Hope this helps a bit.
