Is the webpart you want to change the title for a webpart of your own (if so i would set the title in the constructor of the part)

If not you can use the LimitedWebPartManager to retrieve a collection of webparts for a given SP page (url) and from there you can manually set the title.

The web parts in question are generated by DashBoard Designer to a Dashboard page. I was hoping to use javascript and a CEWP to cycle through the titles on the page and just append a date time to them. It seems very simple, but getting the script to cycle through all of the Titles is difficult. I will take a look at the LimitedWebPartManager object and see the options.
