The second most important part of your listing is the title and the first five words that you have in your title. Make up your canonical URL, so Amazon generates a canonical URL to optimize your product for the search engines.
It is much easier to get indexed and rank easily for these five words in the canonical URL. As per Amazon guidelines the brand name has to come at the beginning of the title.
