Getting name from "selected_object"

Hello
I’m making a script creating Hook whit empty, and than creating bone parented to empty. This is my code now:

import bpy

bpy.ops.object.hook_add_newob()

bpy.ops.object.editmode_toggle()

epy = bpy.context.selected_objects

for i in range(len(epy)):
latn = bpy.context.active_object.name

epy[i].name = latn + "_emp"

print(epy)

Now I have problem to get the name from empty that is now as “selected_object”. How to get the name of that object, so I could make a string of it?
