Target of Target's name?

Currently, I have the following snippet of code that works perfectly and tells me what I want to know:

if UnitExists("target") and (UnitIsUnit("targettarget", "player") or UnitIsUnit("targettarget", "pet")) then

I'd like to add functionality that would also return true if the target of my target is a specific name (for example, "Vim Brineheart"). Is that a possibility? I tried using UnitName, but I must have messed up the code somewhere because it broke the originally working bit. Here's what I tried though:

if UnitExists("target") and (UnitIsUnit("targettarget", "player") or UnitIsUnit("targettarget", "pet") or UnitIsUnit(UnitName("targettarget", "Vim Brineheart"))) then

You only feed units into those functions. UnitName returns the name.

if UnitName("targettarget") == "Vim Brineheart" then
