Why do you want to do that?

  It is really strange, that you want computed variable names
  in local namespaces.

If you want them in an object, class or module, you could use
"setattr". If it should go into the current module,
you could use "globals()[name_expr]=value" (though the
Python spec says, this may change in future implementations).

Note, that security restrictions may prevent you from
using "setattr" in Python scripts.
