So from that I'd say it doesn't seem to be a quirk of Compressor's or FCP's reading of the markers.
Maybe an iOS or iPad-specific thing. Unfortunately, not owning an iPad, I can't try and replicate the problem.
You might want to try a short test where you create and name the markers in Compressor and see whether the names are retained.
Perhaps the iPad discussion forum could turn up someone who has had that experience…and a solution.

Thank you, Russ, for yur interest and replys. It seems like it's an IOS6 issue. Somewhere, when we upgraded to Mountain LION, or LION or IOS6 or Final Cut Pro X or the latest version of Compressor, somewhere along the line Apple has rendered the original iPad to NOT WORK with the chapter marker naming! We just got a new iPad - and all works perfectly!
Just an issue of mixing new software with older hardware, it seems. Don't know exactly where the glitch occurs, but with the new iPad it's perfect. Thanks again,

I have a 3rd generation iPad (32GB with Cellular), iOS 5.1.1, and I have the same problem. I converted a DVD with Handbrake to a m4v file. I manually named the chapters, and Quicktime is displaying the names correctly. When I put the video on my iPad, it does not display the names of the chapters.. How did you solve it?

marwandese, I have exactly the same problem as you on my 1st and 3rd gen iPads. I used Handbrake to encode the DVDs and I entered the chapter names there. It shows up fine in Quicktime and iTunes, but not the iPads.
