The Hobbit Subtitles Revealed?

Once the decision was made to break The Hobbit into two parts, it is natural to wonder what the official titles of the movies may be. Unlike The Lord of the Rings, there are no subtitles as chosen by JRR Tolkien. As a result Peter Jackson and company get to make them. For now the placeholder names have been simply The Hobbit Part One and The Hobbit Part Two but it seems The One Ring has learned of better candidate titles being considered:
Mr. Underbelly noticed that New Line has recently registered the following two film titles: The Hobbit: There and Back Again and The Hobbit: An/The Unexpected Journey
Note the order listed may not be the order the subtitles are used (even assuming they are used). The first title, There and Back Again, is a recall to Lord of the Rings and Bilbo's own title for his adventures. I am not sure if Unexpected Journey has any such call back to Tolkien works.
