How about "Paste From Menu"?

The fact that Paste and Select and Paste behave differently is not a
bug: Paste could be enabled because Emacs sees text in the X selection
(or the Windows clipboard).  In that case, if the Emacs kill-ring is
empty, Select and Paste will be disabled.

As for the buffer-read-only test, I see that it doesn't work in more
than just Paste: for example, Cut also becomes enabled when I mark a
region in a read-only buffer.  I didn't have time to debug this,
