Product Name

If the invention or device is given a unique name in the PPA and the item is shopped around for a partner or distributor using that name, does the PPA extend any copyright or trade name protection?

No.  There is no protection for a name based on what is used in the PPA.

Thank's for the quick reply.  Also, the free advice here goes above and beyond.

That being said, I look forward to being a pain in the ass in the future with more questions.  ;D
