I'm wondering if it possible to have a snippet with several names. For example a snipped for a title which can be expanded using title and ti. Of course it would be possible to add it twice, for each name once, but that's not what I'm looking for.

I don't think so. You can have multiple snippets with the same trigger but not multiple triggers for one snippet. Maybe it's possible in UltiSnips? – romainl Nov 14 '12 at 9:40

Though most snippets are defined in snippets/<filetype>.snippets files, they can also be defined in separate files snippets/<filetype>/<trigger>.snippet. If you use that, you can use filesystem (hard or symbolic, junctions on Windows) links to have two files title.snippet and ti.snippet with identical contents.
