storing variable names in a list before they are used?

If I want to have a list like this:
[(first_name, 'First Name:'), (last_name, 'Last Name:').....]
where the first part of each tuple is a variable name and the second
part is a label for the user to see, such as a form like this:
First Name: ________
Last Name: ________
(the variables would store whatever information is entered in the text
boxes to the right of each label. I'm doing it this way so I can write a
loop to construct my GUI components).
how would I go about putting these variable names in a list? I know I
can't leave them as above, but if I put them in as a string, then how do
I later "transform" them into an actual variable for assign, such as:
first_name = widget.get_text()
Is there some kind of idiom that does this sort of work?
