Some people (including me) call--in English--any larger sized wallet that includes a coin purse, a pocketbook, regardless of whether it is a man's or woman's. I don't know how widespread this is. It is not accepted as correct on this item.

My grandmother always called her purse a pocketbook.

I grew up (USA) using pocketbook more often than wallet for a wallet carried by women, which seemed funny to me as a kid since men were more likely to carry them in their pockets. I looked up lomme and it means pocket--so pocketbook is how I'm storing this one in my memory.
