You're right, just object level is shown not subobject.
Rest to use a package variable to do it...

Only way i know to get the name of the current procedure inside a package is writting your own procedure that will use the dbms_utility.format_error_stack or format_error_backtrace and analyze it to extract the current package.procedure.

Tom Kyte already have written something like this. don`t remember if it work for package but you could try it

No, it has the same drawbacks than the other one: it does NOT give procedure inside package, just the package itself
SQL> create or replace package body tst_pck
  2  as
  3    procedure myproc
  4    is
  5    begin
  6        dbms_output.put_line(dbms_utility.format_call_stack);
  7    end;
  8  end;
  9  /

Package body created.

SQL> exec tst_pck.myproc
----- PL/SQL Call Stack -----
  object      line  object
  handle    number  name
21CCB080         6  package body MICHEL.TST_PCK
21CCA94C         1  anonymous block


PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.

Or with Tom's procedure:
SQL> create or replace package body tst_pck
  2  as
  3    procedure myproc
  4    is
  5    begin
  6        dbms_output.put_line(who_am_i);
  7    end;
  8  end;
  9  /

Package body created.

SQL> exec tst_pck.myproc
Package Body MICHEL.TST_PCK, line 6
PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.

Michel
