I'd use the short name in conjunction with the owner for this:
-- "myControl" is control "A" of group "B" of card "C" of stack "D"
put the short name of myControl into myControlName
put the short name of the owner of myControl into myGroupName
put the short name of the owner of the owner of myControl into myCardName
put the short name of the owner of the owner of the owner of
myControl into myStackName
