I think that the previous thoughts were well placed.  I would suggest that any title be strongly linked to your thesis statement.  Some of the most boring titles are actually the most informative because they are directly connected to the thesis statements that are present in the work.  In developing a title, I would ensure that the thesis statement is properly reflected.  Another option would be to use titles of songs or films that can connect in a humorous, yet informative manner, the ideas being brought out in the paper.  This can only really be done by the author of the paper who knows the subtleties of the writing.  I think that something like "Black Magic Man and Women:  The impact of the supernatural in Macbeth" might be an example of this.
