    Are titles grammatically correct?

    Hi fellow members

    1. The three unforgettable incidents.
    2. A fairytale Came True.
    3. Now we are having a home of harmony.

    The above are three titles.

    Could you please let me know whether they are grammatically correct? I feel that all the titles should be capitalized.

    In particular, in sentence 2, should it be ' ... Come ... ' rather than 'Came'?

Headlines do not always follow strict grammatical rules. #3 is the one that gives me cause to wonder what is meant. To me it would be better as "Now we have a harmonious home".

    In particular, in sentence 2, should it be ' ... Come ... ' rather than 'Came'? It rather depends if the writer wants to emphasise the past in the article.
