Target's target name on initial target frame.

So I am attempting to recreate Delsim's UI to the best that memory serves, bar a few things here or there that I've changed to my liking. One thing that I recall was that, on the target frame, there was text that named the target's target.

I've been attempting to find the answer without directly asking, and all I could scrounge up was:

This produces nothing. Not even an error, just simply nothing. To better illustrate what's happening and what I wish to do, I've provided screenshots.

When I place pitbull into config mode, it shows where I've placed the LUA on my target frame to show the target's target:

With config mode disabled, and myself targeted, the target's target text doesn't appear, at all:

What am I missing to make this work?

Edit: Huh, seems I can't link images for some reason. I'm new to these forums, apologies.

Just doing UnitName("targettarget") doesn't assign the name returned by the function too anything.


return UnitName("targettarget")
Edit: It looks like you can also just:
return Name("targettarget")
