Get current folder display-name

I feel as if I'm missing something here so I'm hoping that someone will be able to help me out. Is it possible to get the current display-name of a folder through Velocity only with the format and page? I'm able to get the display-name of the folder by using a block along with the format but was unsure if the block was necessary.
This is the velocity I'm currently using to accomplish this with the block and format

#set($currentFolder = $_XPathTool.selectSingleNode($contentRoot, "/system-index-block//system-folder[system-page[@current]]”))

    Hi Eric,

    If you wanted to ditch the Index Block, you should be able to accomplish this using the Locator Tool along with the $currentPagePath variable:

    #set ( $currentPage = $_.locatePage($currentPagePath) )
    #set ( $parentFolder = $_.locateFolder($currentPage.parentFolderIdentifier.path.pathAsString) )

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Not a problem at all, Eric. I am glad to hear that did the trick.

    Have a great day!
