When is it a good idea to use a character's name as the title of your story? We've all seen this done from popular novels to short stories in The New Yorker. Why would an author chose to use a character's name as the title? What sort of led them to that do you think? Is it a smart decision? Or when is it a smart decision? I haven't done this, personally, because I can't really tell if it would be appropriate for my work. But sometimes I get stuck on titles and something like this sure would make things easier. What do you guys think?
