Was just wondering how I would modify this piece of code:

<?php
$term = get_term_by( 'slug', get_query_var( 'term' ), get_query_var( 'taxonomy' ) );
echo $term->parent;
?>

...to display the parent name, rather than just an integer? Currently it returns the ID.

Thanks.

if($parent):
    echo $parent->name;
endif;
?>
