retrieve Object names

Hello,

I want to know wich object is under given screencoordinates.
(In this test-case these are the mousecoordinates..)
How can I access the name of the object ??

Code:
import viz

viz.go()

Cube1 = viz.add('theCube.ac')
Cube2 = viz.add('theCube.ac')
Cube3 = viz.add('theCube.ac')

Cube1.translate(-3,0,15)
Cube2.translate(0,0,15)
Cube3.translate(3,0,15)

def mijntimer(num):
	line = viz.screentoworld(viz.mousepos())
	begin = line[:3]
	end = line[3:]
	info = viz.intersect(begin,end)
	if info.intersected:
		print 'you are over object : ', info.object.id
		#mijntest = info.object
		#mijntest.Name() ...??
		#I want the name of the object.. Cube1, Cube2 or Cube3
		
viz.callback(viz.TIMER_EVENT,mijntimer)
viz.starttimer(0,0.5,viz.FOREVER)
for now the output is :

Code:
Loading File: theCube.ac
Loading File: theCube.ac
Loading File: theCube.ac
** Load Time: 0.38 seconds
you are over object :  0
you are over object :  1
you are over object :  2
you are over object :  2
you are over object :  1
you are over object :  2
I would like it to be :
you are over object : Cube1
you are over object : Cube2
you are over object : Cube3

can anyone help me ?
thanks,

geoffrey.

btw : I attached the file theCube.ac but changed the extention to txt (otherwise I could not attach it)
