I am thinking a more manual approach instead.

a) May be is to get from its threat description listing under the "latest description - PC and Mobile type" & "notable threats - Crimeware"

b) It may not cover all for (a) and we consider grabbing from the FSecure DB Tracker which in each listing of the update, it listed the malware names for e.g. in "2016-09-05_07" update, go to the link and you should see the AV names added or updated

I've got from majorgeeks & other sites : all of them ask to download
fsdbupdate9.exe (ie latest) & it can't install/run : I used 7zip to open
its contents but don't see any virus pattern file in it.

For TrendMicro, the lpt$ contains virus definitions & by issuing
   find/i  "name" lpt*  
it lists out the virus names

you cannot depend on just the AV signature name, the details still need to look into. There are many variation and not all ransomware are reflective from its name unlike the earlier one like Cryptolocker, CryptXXX etc.. probably has to look into the alias as well.

Even AV provider has different naming too. This is also demonstrated in VirusTotal listing of the hit by AVs
