    I telephoned yesterday to make a booking.
    I have a booking for three people at 7pm.
    What name is the booking under?

    As a general guide, if the word "reservation" (in the right context) is appropriate then you can substitute the word "booking", in BrE at least.

    Re: Noun for 'to book'

    In the US, you are much more likely to hear "reservation."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
