Senior PM would work but do a good search to set what employers are hiring for and check out the titles.
From my perspective, the title of "Sr." in any professional capacity should be given based on knowledge and years of experience, as opposed to leadership function.
I wouldn't necessarily limit yourself to one title or another based solely on the size of your team. Rather, I would focus on your actual role.
If your function will be to lead project management activities within your company, I see no reason why your title shouldn't indicate as such.
It may be worthwhile for you to visit a website that lists average salaries and related job descriptions.
There are a few well known sites that have reliable information, which may help you decide the title that is more appropriate for you and for your company.
I see Senior Project Managers and rarely see Lead Project Managers titles being used.
"Senior" is just a title. There's no PMI or cross-industry standard for certification level, years of experience, or age. Your organization may or may not have such a standard, if they use the title at all, or it might imply additional duties that other project managers don't have.
I've never seen "Lead" used, but your organization can do whatever they'd like when it comes to job titles. Personally, I think "Lead PM" sounds like you're working on a large program involving multiple project managers. But if your organization is leaving the job description up to you, you should consider "SuperPM" or "Captain Project."
Never seen Lead, Senior is use in many other profession,
I agree with my peers, Senior seems a better fit. Shall you manage several PM - not just one - perhaps you may also want to consider the title "Team Leader"
If you are going to lead a team of projects managers, you might like to be called a "Program Manager"
In generic term normally a 'senior' role would become the 'lead' role within a specific project. So you might have more than one 'senior' role but only one 'lead' role.
