No variable was assigned to x, the code x=myData; just copies the contents of the variable myData to the variable x, you are the one that knows the name of the variable on your code so save it to use later
myData=[1 2 3];
x=myData;
xGotValOf='myData';
myText=x >>>>myText=xGotValOf;

@Hassan: It is worth to mention, that Paulo Silva is not called Paula Silvo, Pilva Saulo, Pausi Lolva or Pava Silulo. He is Paulo. ;-)
