I have a custom post type called 'riders' and a custom taxonomy called 'regions'
A particular rider has a region of 'United States' - which has a parent of "North America.'

I can use get_the_terms() to retrieve the parent ID, but not the parent name.  How can I get the parent name 'North America' for a given post?

Using the term id, you can get the name, slug and description with get_term()

$term = get_term( $term_id, 'regions' );

$name = $term->name;
$slug = $term->slug;
$description = $term->description;
