Can nazwa also be used for the title of a book or other work?

I guess it's possible that someone will call it that, but I don't think it should be used that way.

So nazwa refers primarily to a geographical name, or a commercial name, or a term or description used self-consciously? I am looking at the examples at https://pl.bab.la/slownik/polski-angielski/nazwa

I'd say mostly commercial name... but I guess probably any context in which English uses "name" (it was "title" here, after all) and it's not a word for a person's name. Or a pet's name.
