You can have the variables as properties in a class or structure and then you can use Reflection to make the property name in the loop and set value for that  property...

Continuing above comment...sample code below:
    public class MyObject
    {
        public string Name0;
        public int Name1;
    }

///////////////////

            MyObject obj = new MyObject();
            Type mt = typeof(MyObject);
            for (int i = 0; i < 2; i++)
            {
                string propertyName = "Name" + i;
                PropertyInfo pi = mt.GetProperty(propertyName);
                pi.SetValue(obj, "test" + i, null);
            }

This one is better....
public class MyObject
    {
        public string Name0;
        public string Name1;
    }

///////////////////

            MyObject obj = new MyObject();
            Type mt = typeof(MyObject);
            for (int i = 0; i < 2; i++)
            {
                string propertyName = "Name" + i;
                FieldInfo fi = mt.GetField(propertyName);
                fi.SetValue(obj, "test" + i);
            }
