There are any number of reasons why the third-party (NOT Amazon) that buys the books might not want to purchase books with names in them, or why Amazon may not want to let them. None of us could possibly know what their exact reasons for the rule are. We'd only be guessing. There's no point to that.

In any case, if you're that interested in the trade-in program, it may be a good time to break the habit of writing your name in your books. Unless you're constantly leaving your books in places, there's not really any reason you should feel the need to write your name in them, and now you know doing so possibly hurts you, so it's something to consider. In the meantime, you can still sell your books yourself via the marketplace, or other places such as craigslist. Or, depending how exactly you write your name in them, it may be possible to erase or obscure some of them. You could try anyway, if you wanted.

There's a very simple solution to your problem. Use a wite-out correction pen to cover/erase the ink writing.

To all the students out there, if you intend to sell your textbooks later, take good care of them and do not write or highlight on the pages. If you must write, use a pencil, so you can erase the writings later. Keep your books in good, clean condition and you won't have problem selling them, provided they're still in use.
