Create multiple variables (with a loop?)

I need to create multiple variables (lets say 10x10x10 positions of atoms).
Is it possible to create them through a loop with some kind of indexing like
atom000, atom001, etc?
Or is this a very bad idea?

Thing is ... i want to create a grid of atoms in vpython and then calculate
the forces for each of them (to their neighbours). Don't know how else I
could do that. Maybe a huuuge matrix?

Thx for your help!
