st: Problem putting enclosed brackets.

Dear all,
I've been struggling for days with the following problem.
I want to have the following labels of my variables enclosed into
encapsulated brackets but the code fails:

Instead of having the following desired form:
"Augmenté" "Inchangé" "Diminué" "Non concerné"

I have :
Augmenté "Inchangé" "Diminué" "Non concerné"

I.e. stata keeps ignoring the first label value.

My code is as follows:

qui foreach i of local vars {
loc vall : val la `i'
if "`vall'" ~= "" {
   levelsof `i', l(l)
   foreach k of local l {
      loc lab : lab `vall' `k'
      loc names `names' "`lab'" // loc names `names' "`: lab `vall' `k''"
di `"`names'"'
