Help me create a title for my novel. Please?
Alright. I've been working on this book for almost three years now, and the title has remained: Untitled. It is getting so aggravating that I can't even think right. :confused: :eek: Haha. Here's the introduction:

There is a time and place in the future not too long from now, where animals have grown to frightening numbers large enough to make modern scientists do a double take. A future time period in which humans are on the verge of extinction. The humans have split; one group calls themselves the Survivors and the larger group the TreeHuggers. Survivors kill the animals for resources, highly aware of the danger they’re in, which includes blood-thirsty TreeHuggers, stampedes of antelopes, and the fact that they lack a firm grip on Earth territory. TreeHuggers, on the other hand, live in developed tribes of skyscrapers and hospitals, sharpening their weapons for a human hunting spree. Of course, they believe they’re doing the humane thing; they believe that killing humans and protecting animals is what they were born to do.

There are forty-three humans in the village of Survivors, not one more or one less. In that village, seventeen are female. Six are so crinkled and raspy-voiced that I doubt they will ever have a glimpse of imagination suggesting they could reproduce, two so young they can barely obtain a proper grip on their weapons, but the majority of them, the nine that have been left unmentioned, were balancing on the thin edge between child and teenager.

Soooo, yeah... Also, if you have a better name for the TreeHuggers or Survivors, feel free to spill, because I don't exactly like those names.

Wild Chances? I dunno, I'm terrible with names.
Or... just Survivors. xP

it sounds really interesting!! Maybe... something along the lines of what HannahChen2009 said, like Wild Card or... I don't know. I'm horrible with titles. xD My titles usually have to do with something mysterious and hidden in my story. It's hard to come up with titles for someone else's story. You know that story the best. :p Good luck with finding a title!!

Some ideas:
The Other Way 'Round
Too Extinct To Care
All Down To Us
Lost Cause

IDK, mine all suck. :P

The Flip Side
Harder to Kill than a Cockroach
Thought We Ruled the World

Survivors is a little cliche but nice all the same :) maybe we could use the Latin, Rogatores, meaning "those who hide."

Tree Huggers could be Protectors, maybe: or the Latin, Servatores.

Hope I've helped :)

Population 0
Down Under
Last Alive
Too Small For This World
Dead on Arrival

And for names of groups:
Instead of survivors maybe Gladiators??
And instead of TreeHuggers Silver Canons
I know this has probably passed but it's still fun to do
