Showing "lost" objects

So I have a named group of objects, and a worksheet_activate macro that hides/shows it based on certain conditions.

In a fit of stupidity, I edited the macro, deleting the hide/unhide line, and then promptly forgot the name of the grouped object. How do I get it back?!

Is there any way to conjure up a list of object names? I tried Shapes.ShowAll, but I got a runtime Out of Memory error (I have lots of memory, but I also have lots of objects on the sheet).

Anyone know of a solution?

if you go to the view menu and turn on the formula bar, there is a dropdown box with all names in it. Hope I understood correctly...

To clarify -

The grouped objects are option buttons and rectangles, so they don't appear in the Define->Range menu or box...

Thanks!
