Hi,

 

open the object for the ObjectID, that resulting type is a LayerTableRecord, and now you have access tp a property "Name" and that is the layername.

If you want to give just current layer name try this code as well

        [CommandMethod("curlayer")]
        public void DisplayCurrLayerName()
        {
            MessageBox.Show(Autodesk.AutoCAD.ApplicationServices.Application.GetSystemVariable("clayer").ToString());
        }
