I need help naming my product.  I have a patent pending on an
adjustable totebag for books.  Target market: women who
read.  Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

    It would be helpful to also list all the features and benefits of your bag.

    Thank you savant (don`t want to call you idiot). 
    And sorry to be so vague.  My product is actually a reusable book
    cover which adjusts to any size book.  It replaces your dust
    jacket, and remains on the book while you read it.  There are
    adjustable handles so you can carry it like a tote or over your
    shoulder.  It also has pockets large enough for basic items like
    keys, cash, and phone.  So it turns your book into a purse. 
    My product covers, carries, and protects your book.  I hope that
    helps.

    Booklover,
    As I read your first sentence of this thread, "adjustable totebag for books" - I actually pictured an adjustable bag that carries books.  So the first name that popped out of my head was actually, Book Totes. 
    I didn`t read anyone else`s comments at all. Then as I read further down the thread, you said it is actually a "reusable book cover which adjusts to any size book and that there are adjustable handles so you can carry it like a tote or over your shoulder.  It also has pockets large enough for basic items like keys, cash, and phone.  So it turns your book into a purse.  My product covers, carries, and protects your book." -  which I think the name Book Totes still fits.
    And then I finally read Craig`s comment and he was thinking along the same lines I did, naming it "Book Tote"! Funny how we thought of the same thing!
    So, my clear suggestion would be "Book Totes". 
    Hope that helps.
    Jeannie

    Thanks guys.  Yeah, it certainly is a book tote, but I fear that
    is something I could not trademark because it is already the generic
    word for a tote bag that carries a book.  I need to trademark the
    name of my product right?  Maybe the "blank" booktote?  Great
    suggestions everyone, I really appreciate it.

    OK, here`s a few REALLY off the wall, but they may cause someone to make a leap to something else.
    The Burse... The purse for your book! 
    The Book-Along... Take your book along!  (Naa)
    The ToBo... The Tote for your Book!  ( Remember, Google was not a word several years ago)

    Thanks so much Craig and T5.  I`m really considering every
    suggestion.  Names are tough!  Hopefully Shakespeare`s ghost
    will visit me in my dreams tonight, and tell me what to do.

    Love that one!  Thank you Shakespeare!  After I read it, I immediately checked to see if the domain was available, and the .com is taken. 
    Do you think that could hurt me if I use that name for my product, but
    have to use a different domain name . . . like "booksinbags"? 
    Wait . . . let me go see if that`s available.
