Unless you are using prototypes, user defined functions take lists as arguments. Lists have no names. If you are looking into somehow from the source deduce that it should report sub Hello($text), then forget it. The sub, as defined, takes a list as argument.

If you want a static language like Java, instead of a dynamic one like Perl, go code in Java. But Perl isn't Java.
