Hi.

I wish to study the Sutra of the Buddha Speaks the Buddhas' Names, but can't find it anywhere.

Do you know if this sutra has been translated into english?
Do you know the chinese title for this sutra?
Is it available online?

The Chinese title is 佛說佛名經 Foshuo Foming-jing. It is T 440 (Bodhiruci translation, 12 juan, http://www.cbeta.org/result/T14/T14n0440.htm) and 441 (unknown translator, 30 juan, http://www.cbeta.org/result/T14/T14n0441.htm).

I don't know of a published Western language translation, and the bulk (it is long) is a list of names of buddhas.

Is it a similar list of names of buddhas that you find in the Mahavastu? In Mahavastu there is a list of 500 Buddhas, Mahavastu is available in english, (the names are in sanskrit).
