Writers can't write good titles for their work because they are too close to it, that's what I suggest to my students. Of course, for every rule there are exceptions, yet if you have a person who critiques your work, ask them to suggest some alterternate titles--titles for a long work, a poem, or a short story, screenplay, whatever.
They just might come up with a better title.
It's always worked for me. You can do this as part of a peer review in class.
Titles are like "an approach" on a house or building--the first thing seen, the first impression. Titles need attention. The first goal of a title is to grab the reader's attention. They are almost a form of advertisting.
My titles for the posts have gotten a little better, and I'm getting more responses. Thanks to everyone, and please disagree with me. Let's help each other out.
