All the albums are titled perfectly. Can't imagine any other songs working as album titles.
I agree. Although The Legacy would have been a good title for AMOLAD or Virtual Insanity for VXI.

Alternative song titles is more curious imo. My take:

These are the titles that I think could have been different.

''Charlotte The Harlot'' - it fits, but I've never been a fan of it.
''Gangland'' - Dead Men Tell No Tales would have been much better and it fits the theme of the album.
''Losfer Words'' - it sounds not so serious, a missed opportunity. The Sands Of Time would have been really cool or something else related to Egypt.
''The Loneliness Of The Long Distance Runner'' - it's too long, haha.
''Public Enema Number One'' - the second word is what bothers me.
''Run Silent Run Deep'' - it's cool though.
''Hooks In You'' - it's probably the best title given the lyrics.
''Mother Russia'' - Tsar would have been much better.
''Fear Is The Key'' - I don't like that the album has two songs with the word ''fear'', but it fits... (Bruce's TOS has this feature).
''Weekend Warrior'' - it doesn't sound METAL, but it fits.
''Man On The Edge'' - Falling Down would have been much better.
''2 A.M. - it fits, or maybe something like On My Own.
''The Thin Line Between Love And Hate'' - a very atypical title for Maiden. Live Forever would have been cool.
''Montségur'' - I like it. The Ancient Fortress could have been cool.
''Gates Of Tomorrow'' - Trapped In A Web sounds better imo.
''Age Of Innocence'' - Age Of Uncertainty is better imo.
''The Reincarnation Of Benjamin Breeg'' - Only The Reincarnation aslo would have been great, I mean who is Benjamin? lol.
''The Man Of Sorrows'' - because Bruce has a solo song of that name. I can't think of a different title at the moment.

''Mother Russia'' - Tsar would have been much better.

I have to disagree about Mother Russia! Granted, it's far from being one of the better song titles and the lyrics are a lot less intriguing than the subject matter gives potential for, but as the song is bit of a the times they are a-chancing - even in Soviet Union? kind of a thing, a product of its's time for that matter, I think Mother Russia definitely more fitting title.

Mother Russia
Dance of the Tsars
Hold up your heads
Remember who you are
Can you release
The anger the grief?
Can you be happy
Now your people are free..?


Looking at "Mother Russia" now, I wonder how happy she is...
