I think "Ghost" referred to Black Chamber, as being the ghost of Foxhound, and "Babel" is a reference to the biblical Tower of Babel. Or something :P

It's a Japanese subtitle anyway, so they don't necessarily make much sense if you think about them. Like, take a look at any Metroidvania-style Castlevania, and tell me how does the subtitle describe the game at all. Well, I guess Portrait of Ruin actually has something to do with Portraits.

Ghost Babel. GB. Metal Gear GB.

yeah, it stems from the initials for Game Boy, but there are some ghosts in the game during one of the special story missions.
the end of one nightmare, prelude to the another...
