None Mother Volume name???

Hi all

in my geometry (based roughly in N03), I would like to know if it is possible to obtain the name of the mother volume. From examples:

    G4TouchableHandle touch1 = point1->GetTouchableHandle();
    G4VPhysicalVolume* volume = touch1->GetVolume();
    G4String name = volume->GetName();
    G4int copyNumber = touch1->GetCopyNumber();

So, I go a little far, it is possible:

   G4VPhysicalVolume* mother = touch1->GetVolume(1);

and I tried the next, similar as before, but doesn't work

---> G4String nameMom = mother->GetName();

Is there any way to get the name?

Anyhow excuse me if it is more a matter of C++ programming than Geant4... I"m not pretty sure about the inheritance of the methods in this case, but I thought it was possible.
