My New Backpack Pattern...Can you help me name it?

Well.....My latest design is being tested and proof read as I write this! thing I don't have yet is a NAME! Now I can't very well start offering a pattern without a NAME, now can I?

The one thing I always battle with is naming my new most often used technique is to fish out my good ol` baby naming book, close my eyes and start flicking the pages and then stick my finger in at random and POW...the name my (or at least the one closest to it) finger lands on is the name of the seemed to work quite well for the teddy bears I made BUT somehow for the bags I am finding that I am dismissing and re-flicking more often than not....yeah....OK....I admit it, it simply is NOT an effective way of choosing a name! LOLLL

SO I am hoping YOU can help me out?.......... BUT before I get to that bit, here's a bit about the "New Backpack":

The New backpack is not only super useful BUT super cool and stylish too, with its gorgeous buckle hardware, eyelets and metal feet. Featuring a zippered front flap pocket which has 5 pen pockets and a little coin pocket. There are two side pockets closing with a magnetic snap and a roomy main compartment that also consist of a large elasticized slip pocket for books or a small laptop. PLUS the interior also boasts a zipper pocket of its own! Adjustable straps and a hanging loop complete the ensemble.

Finished bag size = Approx. 36cm (14”) X 33cm (13”) X 15cm ( 6”)
