I thought that's what we used for posthumously assigned names? At
least, that's what I've always seen in print.
But I think that the problem with parentheses and brackets is that
they relegate the Finale to some sort of lesser title, i.e. something
that doesn't normally belong with the rest of the title.

First one that came to mind, but it uses a period. How 'bout that? :)
