This is what the filter function is for...
But you can use list comprehensions too:
[element for element in list if element not foo]
so in your case:
lst = f.readlines() # get file into a list
lst = [line for line in lst if not line.startswith('Name=')]
Or something very similar. For more control use a regular
expression to filter the lines
