[quote=""boswellbaxter""]I can't think of recent examples, but I have some old (1950's) mass market paperbacks where the title was different from the original hardcover, usually to make the paperback more sensational. Philip Lindsay's rather unsexy novel about Katherine Howard Here Comes the King, for instance, was given the title Royal Scandal in paperback (and a sexy cover).[/quote]

The name change I notice most is Philip Pulman's Northern Lights which was renamed The Golden Compass in the US. I am not sure how many other countries this affected.
