Certainly.  Though I don't think that's really what you intended to ask.

    Lukasz> me['First']='Lucas'
    Lukasz> me['Last']='szybalski'

    Lukasz> me= ?

I'm unclear what you are asking.  Do you want a list of dictionaries?, e.g.:

    names = [
            'First': 'Lucas',
            'Last': 'Szybalski',
            'First': 'Skip',
            'Last': 'Montanaro',
