I'm trying to return the name of a label once a checkbox has been selected.

The html looks like this:
<label name="myName"><input type="checkbox" id="n1" name="n1" value="2" /></label>

I've tried:

var checkboxid = $('n1');
var label = parent.checkboxid;
var labelname = label.name;
 
alert(labelname);

I tried the above, and I also tried:

var checkboxid = $(this);
var label = checkboxid.parentNode;
alert(label.name);

And just get: label is undefined

make sure no other element has:
id="n1"

then try:
var labelname =$("#n1").parent().name;
