How can we get the names of fields when any record in inserted in any object using apex

How can we get the names of fields when any record in inserted in any object using apex. I need field API name not value.
Suppose I had created a record in Account and inserted name. Then I need to know from apex that what is the field API name for the record I inserted.

Your requirement is little unclear . If you are inserting Account and inserting name then name field API is the API name . API name exists for Objects and Fields  which are in record .

I think, everytime you insert a record, you want to see which fields (API Name of the field) have got values in it.

If so, please try below. As i created an Account with only Name. Below code will print API name of the field "Name" and ofcourse "ID" as it will have value populated due to our INSERT statement.

Account acc = new Account(Name='Test Account');
insert acc;
Map <String, Schema.SObjectField> fieldMap = Schema.getGlobalDescribe().get('Account').getDescribe().fields.getMap();
for(Schema.SObjectField sfield:fieldMap.values()){
    if(acc.get(sfield.getDescribe().getlocalname()) != null){
