    I've never heard of that site that SMURFSEO mentioned and I'm sure it probably works well, but you should be easily able to find it by looking at the source and doing a search for "wp-content/themes". Whatever shows afterwards will be the theme name.

    One thing you may have to lookout for though it the fact that the website owner may be using their own custom made theme.

    In my case for some of my Wordpress sites, it may have been a theme I found online, but the theme I found online was only an HTML theme and I converted it to Wordpress myself.

    A little tip though, in your browser if you go to "domain.com/wp-content/themes/THEIRTHEME/style.css", you can usually find all the theme details there. When creating Wordpress themes, the author is technically supposed to write in the details about their theme.

    Like this!

    Code:
    /*
    Theme Name: Twenty Twelve
    Theme URI: http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/twentytwelve
    Author: the WordPress team
    Author URI: http://wordpress.org/
    Description: The 2012 theme for WordPress is a fully responsive theme that looks great on any device. Features include a front page template with its own widgets, an optional display font, styling for post formats on both index and single views, and an optional no-sidebar page template. Make it yours with a custom menu, header image, and background.
    Version: 1.1
    License: GNU General Public License v2 or later
    License URI: http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-2.0.html
    Tags: light, gray, white, one-column, two-columns, right-sidebar, flexible-width, custom-background, custom-header, custom-menu, editor-style, featured-images, flexible-header, full-width-template, microformats, post-formats, rtl-language-support, sticky-post, theme-options, translation-ready
    Text Domain: twentytwelve
    
    This theme, like WordPress, is licensed under the GPL.
    Use it to make something cool, have fun, and share what you've learned with others.
    */
    
    This is what shows in top of the style.css file within the twentytwelve theme. It should have some useful information in the style.css for the website you are looking at too.

    Ok, well I'm just saying it shouldn't be too difficult to find the name of the theme via the source code, or at the very least find the path to the theme folder where you can then check the style.css for the theme details like I mentioned above.

    I never seen most of the other posts on here last night because they appeared as I was writing mine. But it sounds like you checked the site SMURFSEO mentioned and they weren't able to find anything on it.

    It still might be a good idea for you to try finding the theme in the source and checking that style.css. That SMURFSEO site might not have accurate results, but even if that's not that case, you may be able to find the authors contact information and he may be willing to provide some type of licensing for you to use the theme or even make you something similar.

    If you have any issues with finding the theme via the source code, I'm sure one of us here could help you out with finding it. But like Macthetrix stated, you just use CTRL+F5 to search the source code.
