Import the PGP key into a client like GPG. Then view the key details. It will tell you the Fingerprint, the ids, the name, the email, and any comments. You should of course verify that the details of that key are indeed correct since there isn't anything like a central server that guarantees that. Anyone could set any name or email that they want in their own PGP key.
