    label - Alias of the command which was used

    Found what i needed now. It gives you the alias that was used

    The label parameter is the command that the user entered. It is usually the same as command.getName(), but if allowed aliases in your plugin.yml, then label may be one of the aliases, where as command.getName() always returns the primary command name. I generally ignore the label parameter. I cannot think of a need for it unless your command handling code displays what the user entered, or (gasp) the command acts differently when using an alias.
