I considered suggesting "container", but the problem is that "container" is used elsewhere to mean "object supporting the 'in' operator" (in particular, collections.abc.Container has a __contains__ method but no __len__ method).

The abstract base class for "object with a length" is collections.abc.Sized, but I don't think using the term "sized" would be clear to users.
