Use this:

$blocks = Mage::app()->getLayout()->getAllBlocks();

This will give you an array with the block instances. To get only the names use this:

$blockNames = array_keys($blocks);

Magento,get list child of a block using _sortedChildren variable of this block object

Suppose if want get all child block name of root block then

justblock from layout and fetch block and get list of child block name:

$block = $this->getLayout()->getBlock('root');

 $childBlockNameCollection=$block ->_sortedChildren;
  echo "<pre>";
 echo "</pre>";

Do recursive function get all list of child block.
