Bug Description

When adding a bookmark in the E-book viewer, please suggest a name, for example "Bookmark" that the user can change if he/she wants. It would make it a little faster to add a bookmark.

Why would anyone want to have a bookmark named "Bookmark" and since no
one would, it would just have to be erased everytime, a pointless
exercise.

I don't understand why not if they don't want to name it. I would:)

If they don't want to name it, why do they need a suggestion they won't
use and don't care about?

What is the use of an unnamed bookmark? How would you refer to it again?
What if you have ten bookmarks named "Bookmark"

For me I sometimes bookmark things that are interesting and I want to do it fast. Like just press bookmark and OK. Yes it would be difficult to know what it was without going through the bookmarks easily. I would prefer to have some text already written but it could be something else than just bookmark, for example bookmark 1, 2, 3 etc. or even better if I could be something from the current page. This is only my preference so if you think the majority of calibre users won't like it then you can skip it.

Is it possible to name the new bookmark from the chapter and add a number instead of naming it Bookmark and a number? In the bookmarks panel, it is not possible to see the chapter in the bookmark so it would make sense.

Instead of giving the bookmark a random number, you can use the reference instead to, to distinguish between bookmarks.
