Rumored Title is Star Wars: Episode VII - The Ancient Fear?

Ain't It Cool News is reporting that they have two sources indicating that the humored title of the next Star Wars film is Star Wars: Episode VII - The Ancient Fear. Their source says the title "refers to Max Von Sydow's villain who makes Pazuzu look like a pussy!". For some reason AICN and the various sites reporting these nuggets failed to explain what Pazuzu is (can't help but wonder how few actually know the reference).

Any case I had no clue so some quick Google-fu later and the source is probably referring to the evil girl possessing spirit from the movie The Exorcist. Which in turn probably got its name from from Babylonian mythology where the spirit "was the king of the demons of the wind...represented the southwestern wind, the bearer of storms and drought [and famine]." So basically we learned nothing from the analogy except AICN's source likes to drop movie trivia in useless ways. The title itself has not been officially confirmed.
