Two ways I can think of

1. Make the calling form the Owner of the form being created

    Form2 := TForm2.Create(Self);  //where self is the current form

    Then in Form2 to get the calling forms name/title you can use
    if (Owner is TForm) then
       TitleOfCaller := TForm(Owner).Caption
    //or
    //nameOfCaller := TForm(Owner).name

2.   Add the parent form title to the form and pass it on create

    TForm2 = class(TForm)
    .........
    private
       FParentFormTitle: string;
     ........
    public
       property ParentFormtitle: string read FParentFormTitle write FParentFormTitle;
    end;

    when calling from MainForm
    Form2 := TForm2.Create(Application);
    try
      Form2.ParentFormTitle := Caption;
      Form2.ShowModal;
    finally
      FreeAndnil(Form2);
    end;
