How do you do it?
Does the name come to you freely, or do you have to force it out?
Does it come before or after the poem is complete?
It sadly pains me, making me sit and stare at the finished product with no name...

I have to do it at the end, when I know how the poem has concluded and what the overarching themes were.  Nothing worse than a title and poem that just don't match because the title was thought of before the poem wandered off on one.  I have to admit, I find it hard to come up with interesting, creative titles... especially as I favour one-word titles.  It's a bit of a drag!
