Facebook, javascript: Function with userID as parameter that returns name

It is possible to make a javascript function with an user id as parameter, that will RETURN the user's name?


Since the FB.api call is asynchronous, it's a little tricky to get it to simply return a user name. Depending on what you wanted to do with the name (populate a text field, display to the user, etc) you could pass in a callback function to be called once the name was retrieved. Something like this?

function getName(userId, callbackFunction) {
    FB.api('/' + userId, function(response) {


and you would use it like this

getName(YOUR_USER_ID, function(name) {
