Asking someone to provide a title without having read the material makes the whole selection process arbitrary.  My suggestion is that you read the work in question very thoroughly and determine a title that best "labels the can" for your readers, that is, let us know if it's dog food or chilli.  Beyond that, your personal creativity creates the brand; however, keep in mind that your title is the first impression that your readers get of the work, so it needs to be something appropriate and a little provocative to pique interest.  Hope this helps.
