Ok, I knew I was going to look like a dumb camel right after
posting my question... Nevertheless there is a useful case of
knowing such an instance's name, at least I believe I found
one. Have a look at the following page, spot the question mark
and you'll know what I mean:

But, PLEASE, don't start to ask me anything about the project
itself!! It's all in a very pre-pre-pre-alpha phase...

There might be some workaround solution in oder to get that
name I want, as in some of the replied in this thread, but
I'll evaluate that later...
