Creating variables on the fly...

Let's say I have four variables:
And I have a function that adds these variables together:
But now let's say I have twenty variables that I want to add together.
This function will no longer work. I would have to rewrite it as
a+b+c+d+e+f+g+...+(20th letter). Is there a way to dynamically create a
variable name? So that my add function can automatically determine how
many variable names to create and then add the values together. In
other words, I'd ideally like something like:
return a+b+c+...+(letter corresponding to number_of_variables)
Thanks for your help,
