Magento uses an EAV table structure for products. Names are stored in catalog_product_entity_varchar. If you have the product ID X, you can query this table directly:

SELECT entity_id, value, store_id FROM catalog_product_entity_varchar
  WHERE entity_id = X AND attribute_id = (
    SELECT attribute_id FROM eav_attribute
    WHERE entity_type_id=4 AND attribute_code='name'

The subquery determines the attribute id for "name", entity_type_id 4 is always the type ID for products.

Note that in a multistore setup you might get multiple values per product. Pay attention to the "store_id" column. "0" stands for the default value.


Use below query to find name from product_id

SELECT value FROM catalog_product_entity_varchar WHERE entity_id=2 AND (attribute_id IN(SELECT attribute_id FROM eav_attribute WHERE attribute_code = "name" AND entity_type_id = 4))

Change entity_id=2 as per your product id


If your product's id is 1234:

select value from catalog_product_entity_varchar left join eav_attribute on
    eav_attribute.attribute_id = catalog_product_entity_varchar.attribute_id
    eav_attribute.attribute_code='name' and 
  • there is no row_id column, use entity_id instead of row_id. – chirag Dec 21 '16 at 12:04
  • In Magento 2 you have row_id – Phoenix128_RiccardoT Dec 21 '16 at 12:21
  • what? can you share screenshot of your database table? – chirag Dec 21 '16 at 12:21
  • Magento EE has row_id. – nikola99 Feb 1 '17 at 0:03

Or you can try this also,for single record, X is your product_id you have to replace it by your own product id.

SELECT DISTINCT value FROM catalog_product_entity_varchar WHERE entity_id=X AND (attribute_id IN(SELECT attribute_id FROM eav_attribute WHERE  attribute_code = "name" AND entity_type_id = 4))
