In general, you can use getLocation() to get the location of the name in a
NamedDecl. For a FunctionDecl, there's also getNameInfo(), which will
return more detailed information about the name of the function (allowing
you to handle the case where the function name is more than a single token,
such as for C++ functions with non-identifier names like "operator int*").
If you want to also include the preceding C++ nested name specifier as part
of the name, you can use getQualifierLoc to determine its location.
