ok, here's my loop.  it only goes through once and exits.
(words is a dictionary with each letter of the alphabet corresponding to a
different word)

name = raw_input("Please enter your name: ")

for i in range(0, len(name)):
    letter = name[i]    

while len(name) > 0:
    print words[letter]
name[i] = name[1:] 

i can't figure this out!!!

please help, thanks!
