In oracle a few ways to get database name.  This might be different from instance name.

Select * from global_name;

There are a few v$ vieww to get it from as well like V$instance.

On mobile. Sorry for misread:

Unix look for pmon process.

Windows look at oracle services.

If you mean the process name, you can do "ps -ef | grep dataserver" on Unix.  I'm not sure what the executable name is on Windows.
