Want to help me title my book? #amwriting

I've been working writing very hard since the release of The Beacon. I have two works in progress at the moment.

One is a psychological thriller - like my novella The Beacon.

The other is the sequel to my first book, the science-fiction/suspense story Lifeboat. 

I'm having trouble coming up with titles for both at the moment. I just decided on one I like for the thriller yesterday although it isn't set in stone and it may change.

For today, however, I am concentrating on my sequel which is about a quarter of the way written. Of course, there are many more steps to go. First, I need to finish it, then to do an initial edit, then an official edit with an editor, and on and on. But I'd really love to come up with a title to carry with me through the process.

If you've read Lifeboat you will know how the story ends. I don't want to go into that here, for those who haven't read it, because I don't want to give any spoilers. 

Suffice it to say Cassie has a child I am calling Tolo - a hybrid human/alien - and this sequel is his story. I'd really appreciate it if you would vote in my poll and help me give his story a name. Thank you Abites. :)

P.S. If you come up with a better name and I use it you might just get yourself thanked in the acknowledgements! ;)

Edit: There is a last minute forerunner to be added to the list. The aliens use the derogatory term "mockling" to describe hybrid aliens/humans. This potential title should be added to the list, but if you like it you are going to have to say so in the comments, okay?

    1. Yay! I think that might be my favorite so far. I just had reservations about it - felt too war like or something. :)
