What's in a Name?

When buying from the internet, what makes you buy a book? As readers we are attracted initially to covers, and blurbs might cement the decison to buy a book or not, but it's my opinion that titles are the main ingredient to selling a book you can't pick up and flick through. Giving the book a title that can only be understood after the book has been read, may be a strike against you in the highly competitive publishing world.
