Is there a way to just return the values when using sqlite3?

If I:

    names = c.execute('select names from students')
    for name in names: print names

I get the list I want, but they look like

(u'Cleese, John')
(u'Jones, Terry')
(u'Gillaim, Terry')

is there a way to just return

Cleese, John
Jones, Terry
Gillaim, Terry


It seems a shame to have to run the answers through a stip process.

There are no stupid questions, just stupid people.
