Add getSObjectType() Method to DescribeFieldResult Class
Development (Apex, LWC & VF)
Add getSObjectType() Method to DescribeFieldResult Class. SObjectFields are bound to a particular SObject. It would be useful to get the SObjectType for a given SObjectField / DescribeFieldResult.

Maybe you can use this to solve the problem:
Type myObjectType = MyObject__c.myField__c.class;
String myObjectName = myObjectType.toString(); // You can use getName() as well
That code will give you the Type of MyObject__c class. Then you can use all the methods for Type class in Apex like toString() or getName() to get the String name of MyObject__c.
Please check the Salesforce Type Class for more info.
