    I think your best bet to read it would be a magnifing glass or microscope on the original picture.

    If you can get a high DPI scan of just the name tag area (about 1500DPI) it might be readable.

    I hate to be the pessimist, but you probably are not going to tell - at least not from this version of the picture. You can't see something that does not exist in the picture. Your only chance (as stated above) is to take a magnifying glass or microscope to the original (paper) picture or a very high resolution scan. If the original pic looks the same as this one, I'm willing to say with 95% certainty that you won't be able to read the name on the nametag. Sorry..
