Question Get NPC Name

I'm looking through the API and I'm trying to figure out if there's a way to get the in-game name of a character in game, specifically, a hunter pet. I have found options to get the unit name, but those return the name of the pet (the name the hunter gave the pet). I am interested in getting the in-game name. The name before the pet was tamed.

I would like to have it return "King Krush" instead of "Bigreendino". I've checked through the Pet and Unit APIs and nothing is standing out for me.
