Some Flash Action Script… 

If you ever need to get the instance or parent name of a movie clip you can give the parent movie clip a variable in the first frame such as:

RetName = “sample1”;

Then you can call it at any time using the following method:

InstanceName = movieclip.RetName;

movieclip being the child.

I needed to do this recently for a flash game and only just worked this out.
