Assigning names to contiguous line segments

I have hundreds of polylines  across the US, with each polyline consisting of 10 to 100 segments. One segment in each line has a name field. I want to assign the name in a given segment to all other segments in the same line. I can't use a spatial join and assign the name of the closest segment, as it may assign the name from a nearby line, not the line segment in the same line. I can use a spatial join and assign the name of touching segments, but I would have to repeat this process 100 times if a line has 100 segments. Any suggestions on how to make this process quicker?
