Unfortunately this is part of the ANSI SQL specification to return just the column name, and the the table name as well. You will find that all databases should react this same way. So you are stuck alias'ing the columns with AS if you want to have a different name then the default. Most API's also offer a way to access data by the column offset, such as 1 or 2 in your above case, rather than the name.
