Identity Crisis

My previous work, Identity, is nearly through the Pure Fiction League critique group I belong to, and is out to agents on query. As I think about publication, I’ve run into a problem: its title.

I found no less than 23 books entitled Identity in Amazon before I stopped looking, including the one by Milan Kundera (no pressure there). I didn’t even bother counting occurrences of Identity Crisis. So from a marketing standpoint, Identity has some identity challenges no matter how it’s published.

So I started trying to think of other equally-valid-but-less-used titles. These are some I’ve either scraped up myself or have been suggested to me, listed in order by my decreasing level of enchantment with them; none show up in Amazon.

Based on the description on the Identity page and perhaps the sample chapters, any thoughts?
