From what I remember them mentioning, it was a case of they knew they wanted to call it AvPR to capitalize on the R rating and had to find a cool R word for the title.
Revenge. Renegade. Rampage. Raw. Retaliation.

Just off the top of my head, and they're probably more fitting.

I think you've already put more effort into the name than the creators did.

  • COLIDER:  Can you talk just a little bit about the title? What is the Requiem part? Why Requiem? What is that referring to?

    Colin Strause: It’s kind of 2 things. One it was you know trying to show the more adult theme to the movie…

    Greg Strause: The real answer we can’t give you on record.

    Colin Strause: Also it was supposed to make it more adult which is basically the big thing with the movie. The last one was a little bit more kind of a normal sci-fi where ours is much more of a darker town. I think you saw from that clip it’s a lot kind of meaner of a movie.

I also remember them saying that they intended it to sort of be saying "we're done here" with regards to AVP being set on Earth and knowing that if there was a third one it would have to be set in space. Hence one of the original ideas for the ending being a scene set in the future where we would have seen Predators fighting Aliens on the Xenomorph home world.

- The Fox moderator admitted that the film wasn't really meant to have the subtitle "REQUIEM" and that AVP-R really stood for the "R" rating.

I assume this is what Greg was referring to when he said "The real answer we can’t give you on record."

It sounds like an idea that a 10 year old would come up with.
