Re: Why are the James Bond stories named the way they are?

The World is Not Enough got its title from the Bond family motto

Goldeneye got its name from Fleming's home in Jamaica

Tomorrow Never Dies was supposed to be called Tomorrow Never Lies as a reference to Carver's newspaper in the film.

License to Kill was named after Bond's freedom to shoot people after 'License Revoked' tested badly.

The Spy Who Loved Me was originally a short story in which a woman in a Canadian motel is hassled by thugs and Bond comes in and saves her. they boink and he's TSW 'loved' her.

For Your Eyes Only is a reference to the classification level 'Eyes Only', typically to a general or station chief or what ever.
