terminal-name is documented to return the name of the terminal of the
selected frame, so I don't think you can assume it will return the
terminal of the frame which _will_ be selected after the focus-in
event is processed.

focus-in-hook is useful for doing something when Emacs gets focus, not
necessarily related to the frame which was or will be the selected
frame.  For example, blink-cursor-mode uses this hook just fine.

It sounds like you want to use some other hook or feature for your
purpose.  Did you try to bind your function to the switch-frame
pseudo-key, for example?
