Get product by ItemName rather than ItemID on detail page

Get product by ItemName rather than ItemID on detail page

I'm trying to pass product info by name rather than item id for seo purposes. I've got a site where I've done this and it works fine so the detail url will be:
detail.php?ItemName=Roses which I can rewrite with my .htaccess file. However, I need also to pass the ItemID as the variants recordset does not contain the item name, so previously when I was passing the item by ID the SELECT statement was:

FROM itemvariants
WHERE VarItemID=colname (colname contains the $_GET['ItemID'] command).

If I pass the item by name I can't GET the ItemID, what would be the best way of passing this to the detail page?
