Flash waaaaaaaay forward here, but I am getting my vote in early. From a chapter title in one of the Fleming books, I vote for :
"A Whisper of Hate".

I've been saying for years they should go to chapter titles. If they use The Hildebrand Rarity, there will be rioting in the streets.

Whatever it is it HAS to have two "O"s in it, so they can make put a "007" in the poster. Propery of a Lady fits that concept nicely, lol!

Property of a Lady is already widely known for being a plot point in Octopussy. I doubt it will happen, nor do I think it should.

Nah. "Property of a Lady" sounds like one of those boring-ass three hour movies set in the 19th century about some spoiled yet repressed young woman discovering herself that no one goes to see but critics lavish heaps of praise upon.

"Whisper of Hate" does have a certain resonance to it.
When it comes to "The Hildebrand Rarity" and "Property of a Lady"... The first sounds a bit too Robert Ludlum-like to me and the second sounds indeed like a period drama. I know that their from Fleming and many Bond fans just want Fleming titles, no matter how it sounds.
If they're going to come up with original titles (fine by me), I'd rather not have another "Die" variation.
IMO, there are still to great titles they could use (both from Fleming, none a short story or novel title):
- Shatterhand (perhaps another one word title wouldn't hurt this time around);
- The Man WHo Is Only A Silhouette (a bit long perhaps, but it has a certain cool and mysterious quality to it, I believe, and I think this would be absolutely perfect for Craig's Bond).
Both come from novels: the first is Blofeld's alias in "You Only Live Twice", while the second is (if me memory isn't failing me) from a line in the "Moonraker" novel (the last line in the novel, perhaps?).
What do you fine people think?

I think Beyond the Ice should be seriously considered.

Considering the only exposition they included in "Quantum of Solace" related to the title was the name of the organization, they might as well stick with Bond 23 for the next one. That way my expectations are not built up and summarily dashed.

The "Whisper of Hate" could refer to Quantum's feelings / references towards Bond after he derailed one of their plans, ID'd a number of their executives and actually had the balls to practically mock them, all in QoS.

"whisper of hate" is most i likely to vote for it. Does anyone here who want's the same as mine. Very cool post that is.

That is a good one, as would be "Beneath the Ice"
