There are two possibilities on the top of my mind:
XMonad.Actions.GridSelect, which IIRC is only available in the darcs version (someone please correct me if I'm wrong!) and gives a colored grid of windows, where you can select one.

XMonad.Prompt.Window has some prompts (with autocompletion) to go to a window or bring it here, based on the window's title.
