Topic: Finding Font Names for PDFlib?

I just started playing around with PDFlib (under RealBasic & Mac OS X) and just met an old & basic problem that I know back from when I was creating EPS-files manually:
finding the correct name of a font that I can pass to PDFlib (or any Postscript-/pdf-interpreter, for that matter. I remember poking around in the system's font-files to find an appropriate entry there - which _sometimes_ worked. Now I strongly depend on using any font that is available in the OS's fontmenu in my PDFs...) The font metrics files mentioned in the PDFlib-docs doesn't even exist on many systems.
I would really appreciate if someone could share his/her approach on finding out this font name in a halfway reliable way (nice if it also works x-platform..) or give me a hint (can ATM be helpful?)
Thanks a lot in advance - Ingo
