The Chemfinder database contains over 75,000 compounds- if you don't find it here, it's unlikely that you'll find it elsewhere.
If you'd prefer a paper resource, The Merck Index published by Chapman & Hall provides another route to compound names from formulas (and vice versa). The index is a 2300 page book that contains over 10000 compound entries. It is now available on CD ROM. The entries include chemical formulas and structures, physical properties such as density and solubility, references on syntheses, and toxicity and therapeutic category.
