Can't be done. Objects don't know what names they are bound to.
Furthermore, your question is based on an invalid assumption. Objects
aren't necessarily bound to a single name, they can be bound to zero,
one, or more names.
What name should Spam print in these examples?
alist = [1, 2, Spam(), 4]
x = y = z = Spam()
