[R] Using Object's Name in Function

Suppose I have a function:
myfunc <- function(x, y) {

And within the function I want to print out the name of the x, y
vectors.  For example, if I do:
> myfunc(foo, goo)
[1] "foo" "goo"

It shall return "foo", "goo" (with or without quotes is fine), where foo
and goo are two vectors with numbers.

I know this sounds strange, but I'd like to use it for debugging purposes.
