A String containing the name of this member.

_MemberInfo.Name

Only the simple name of the member is returned, not the fully qualified name.

This example lists the Name and DeclaringType property of each member of the specified class.

using System.Reflection;

class Example
{
    public static void Main()
    {
        // Get the Type and MemberInfo.
        Type t = Type.GetType("System.Empty");
        MemberInfo[] memberArray = t.GetMembers();

        // Get and display the type that declares the member.
        Console.WriteLine("There are {0} members in {1}",
                          memberArray.Length, t.FullName);

        foreach (var member in memberArray) {
            Console.WriteLine("Member {0} declared by {1}", 
                              member.Name, member.DeclaringType);
        }
    }
}

//       There are 6 members in System.Empty 
//       Member ToString declared by System.Empty 
//       Member GetObjectData declared by System.Empty 
//       Member Equals declared by System.Object
