The name of the currenr project is stored in the
built-in property So you can use
something like this:
<project name="main" default="main" basedir=".">
    <target name="main">
        <echo>Main project name is
        <subant antfile="sub.xml" target="sub"

<project name="sub" default="sub">
    <target name="sub">
        <echo>Sub project name is

But if you want in your main file the names of all sub
projects, it would be harder.
