I feel like it's a good name too.

just as the author put it.Strong heart is the best name. He did this so that we should try to figure out who the strong heart is after reading or in the process of reading it

Strong Heart is just very okay for the title. It fits perfectly. Any other title should just be a synonym of Strong Heart.

Thinking of any other name exhaustively but I found out none other better than Strong Heart. The author seems to have done a thorough research on the title.

Alternatively, I would name it "Things are not what they seem".

I have no idea what I would call the book, however I do not think that the title reflects 100% on the book because it does talk about other things that doesn't necessarily interact with strong heart.

I still can't imagine another name for this book as the title fits perfectly.

It seems too long and I don't really think it fits the book.

Just based on the cover, I didn't make the connection between the character and the title, but after reading, I realize that the title is totally fitting, and I can't think of a better title.

I love the title and it was one of the first things that drew me to this book. It fits wonderfully.
