Get Object Variable Name inside the objects function

I'm searching a way to retrieve an objects name within a function of the object itself (the name of the object in the workspace, not the classname!).
Any ideas? Thanks :)
P.S.: Googling this is really hard, you can imagine the keywords "Object" and "Name" are totally specific to this problem ;)
