That depends on whether those names could be legal variable names. You
are better off getting the real names into variable labels. 

(It's best not to delete what you are replying to. That's over-zealous,
although sometimes better than the opposite extreme of deleting
nothing.)

the gen() option worked out great. Thank you. Is it also possible, that
these
newly generated variables are named after the brand name in new_brand?
instead of name1, name1, etc
