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'?

Many thanks in advance.

@tanguatlay,
The first two are fine, but

Every word should start with a capital letter
No period/full stop at the end of a title.

3. Now we are having a home of harmony.

This reads like a word-by=word translation from anothe language like Chinese.

Now We Have Harmony At Home perhaps?

Regarding came/come in title (2),

A Fairytale Came True means "a fairytale came true"

A Fairytale Come True means "a fairytale which has come true"

Rules of punctuation have nothing to do with the grammar of English, Tanguatlay. They are merely preferences relating to style.
