I need for a manga I'm making for my portfoilo...Here's the story.
The main character is a girl and her name is Vivian. She's like Trish from Devil May Cry and i'll say a little like the woman from Tomb Raider. She lost her family when she was 7 years old and was adopted by a Devil king. She was raised and was obtained demon powers after her adopted father's death. Now she on a adventure to find out about the death of her family. She going to have 2 friends, First one name Kyoji,a fighter who discovered he has the power of a twin dragon. Ren, A swordsman, his sword called Raisakouri(lighting ice) and he want to find his sister Ruri. (No stealing.)
Basic Summary:
She's on a search to find out about her family. While she's on her journey she meets a couple of people,Kyoji and Ren and a little girl name Susan. She fights vampires and other demons or creatures on her adventure to find out about her family's death. She uses her demon energy to shoot her guns most of the time and she has martial art combat. She teams up with Kyoji and Ren during her journey. So tell what you think.

I think you didn't give enough information for us to think a proper title. One or two chapter and a good amount of story is needed before we can think a good title... Right now, I can only think "Devil Vivian" as the title.

Woman from Tomb Raider = Lara Croft.

If she use guns you could name it
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (you can add X between it like: Kiss x Kiss x Bang x Bang).

You know, I've always seen people misspell Lara Croft. For some reason a lot of people are baffled by the complex spelling of 'Lara', a highly complex and difficult to spell four letter word. But this is the first time I've seen someone misspell the 'tomb' in 'Tomb Raider.'

Basically, what I'm trying to say is someone needs to make a manga called Tom Raider, now. I suppose it could play out as a man named Tom who raids shit, or, I suppose, as a porno involving Lara Croft and some guy named Tom.

I dunno, but Kodos gave you a pretty good plot idea. ;)

I/we really can't give you a good title since you haven't given us enough info. Also, what you've described at the top is what happens in the story and you have't really told us what the manga's gonna be about. You need to give us a basic summary.

I think I'll just list some common concept used to make title... (since we're talking about title, I will talk all kind of title, not only manga, since I believe that manga title and other medium title is more or less the same).

- The easiest is just use the protagonist name is the title. Ex: Naruto, Blue Submarine no.6 (name of the submarine), Doraemon. Kagetora, Superman, Batman, Flash, Captain America, etc etc...

- You could even further add a "subtitle" to the name. Ex: Jiguko Sensei Nube (Nube is the name, Jigoku Sensei means Teacher from Hell), Asuka Hybrid (Asuka is the protagonist while hybrid since she was a he... you know what I mean ^_^), Rurouni Kenshin, Mirai Nikki (Nikki is the protagonist, Mirai/Tomorrow is because he could "predict" the future), Tekken Chin-mi, Yu-Gi-Oh (The name is Yugi, Oh/Ou is King).

- You also could use "title" or "job" of the protagonist as the title. Ex: Nurarihyon no Mago, Phoenix Wright : Ace Attorney, Needless (title given to people who have the "power"), Defense Devil (a manga about devil who become a defense lawyer), Ex-Driver (title given to driver who use vehicle to catch bad guys).

- You could also use name of skill that used by the protagonist, or commonly used by people at the manga. Ex: Freezing, Cross-over, Ghost Trick, Zero-In (the name of unique martial art that exist in that manga).

- Or you could even resort to use term that commonly associated with manga that you make. Ex: Shoot (soccer manga), Break-Shot (billiard manga), Dribble (another soccer manga), Katana (though this is about blacksmith manga, not a samurai manga), Vagabond (a travelling/ronin samurai). Some more vague example: You Are Under Arrest (reminds you of what cop usually say), Bamboo Blade (reminds you of Kendo)

- If your manga have some kind of "gimmick" or especially unique thing (could be anything unique, from unique name, location, term, anything...) in it, you could use it. Ex: Apple Seed, Angelic Layer, ZOIDS, One Piece (the greatest treasure in the manga that everyone want to get a hold of), Deadman Wonderland ("one-in-the-world" prison in said manga).

- You could even simply said what is your manga all about. Ex: Mafia, Supernatural, Heroes, Ninja, Shinobi.

How about now then? I gave you a basic summary. You think you can give me a title now or should I add more.

Errr... I just give you some title example so you could think it better by yourself, since like I said, no one other than you, could think the best title for your own manga.

Please do a script and send it to Rio for the contest.

Man I'm still laughing, we should make a thread about Tom Raider.

I'd be tempted to, except I don't think a hentai would be acceptable, and I don't think there's enough comedy behind the concept of "Tom Raider" to really get a whole manga. Maybe a single image.

I think in a comedy sense, it has enought for a short comic or various shorts comics, for example using one short as "Tom Raider in Raiding a Box" and you present Tom like the Crocodile Hunter who is in an adventure to raid a box (not in a sexual maner).

I think I could use it as a interlude in a bigger comic.
