    Some of EON's levels have a nice ring to them:

    Death of An Agent
    Death's Door (or maybe The Door to Death)
    A Show of Force
    The Machinery of Evil
    Red Line
    Red Underground

    I like this one. I'd probably go for Time Starts Now personally. Although I don't like the TSN abbreviation.
    "Watching TSN today."
    "Oh yeah? Who's playing?"
    "No..."

    (The name of a flower. Heard it on the radio!).

    Wow, that is a depressing plant! :)
    I like it though, very Fleming origin of a title.

    Yes, could be used as an alternative title for the YOLT novel I suppose or Never Send Flowers. Someone may have suggested it already but like you I thought it was pretty Flemingesque.

    That is a great title, and even better that it’s a flower.

    Yes, I have an especial liking for flower-based Bond titles as I think they're quite subtle and still quite Bondian and Flemingesque at the same time.

    Yes, that sounds very much like a Fleming title. I like it a lot.

    Thanks. I heard it mentioned on BBC Radio 4's Gardener's Question Time of all places!

    Shamelady is one that pops up a bit as it's a Jamaican plant (although I think it's actually called shame old lady), and I quite like Tigerlily, although perhaps it's not hugely original.

    I think Bond's house in Jamaica at the start of Raymond Benson's Zero Minus Ten (1997) was called Shamelady. It was obviously meant to be Goldeneye. I'm pretty sure Shamelady has some connection to Fleming too, possibly being the name of the boat Blanche Blackwell gave to Fleming? In any event it was also the name of a 1960s spy novel by James Mayo (Stephen Coulter) who worked with Fleming at the Sunday Times and helped him with the gambling scenes in Casino Royale.

    I like both, and Dragonpol's. More flower titles, I say. Growing up a couple of years in Texas, we were always told it was illegal to pick the state flower, so you could never gift them. (Never Send Flowers...) They're called Texas Bluebonnets, one word. Maybe not very Bondian beyond a chapter title.

    Just trying to move away from "Death", "Kill" etc.and rework a saying like Fleming often did - Time Starts Now becomes Time Starts Today.
