What's in a title?

Recently I learned that many authors do NOT get to choose the title of their books. Usually they have input and/or veto power, but they rarely come up with a title on their own.
This is comforting to me.  I’d rather not choose my title.
It’s impossible to decide on something. I need a title that will sell, but I also want something with atmosphere. I don’t trust myself to come up with one.
So far I’ve thought of Doughboy, My Bronze Boyfriend, and neither one of them is right. Not by half. So please ignore my bad titles, because I’m not really committed to them. I’m committed to my characters.
