Why don't you try doing something where it looks up names try something like:

if (GET_NAME(tch) == IS_PLAYER) {
send_to_char(blah blah blah)
if GET_NAME(tch) != IS_PLAYER) {
send_to_char(blah blah blah)

these are not the actuall function names as I do not know those off hand 
but something like this should work cuz the if's will force it to look 
for players names before mob's names..Hope this helps.
