Model._meta.verbose_name.title() returns verbose name with First Character Uppercase while Model._meta.verbose_name_raw property returns the verbose name you wrote in the model class.

Model._meta.verbose_name.title()

and

Model._meta.verbose_name_plural.title()

return singular and plural Model's verbose names accordingly. There's also Model._meta.verbose_name_raw property, it seems to return unicode string for me, while verbose_name.title() returns a normal string, but I'm not sure what's the real difference between this and verbose_name.title().
