How to assign a different variable name to each loop?

Hi, below I have a query that when ran on my table produces the following correct result:
Phone 0,2,5
Text 2,4,3
Email 0,3,2

The series of 3 numbers represent how many of each type of call for the past 3 months.

Problem is, I can't for the life of me figure out how I can get unique variable names for the 3 series of numbers kind of like:

$name_array1 = $row["array"];

then next loop
$name_array2 = $row["array"];

and last loop
$name_array3 = $row["array"];

I need to be able to display the results in different areas of the page so I need to be able to echo out each one by itself. Make any sense??

$result = mysql_query("SELECT t.name, ifnull(c.array,'0, 0, 0') array from calltypes t left outer join (SELECT CallType, concat(sum(if(CallDate>='$threemonthsago' and CallDate<'$twomonthsago',1,0 and account_id = '$account_id')),', ', sum(if(CallDate>='$twomonthsago' and CallDate<'$onemonthago',1,0 and account_id = '$account_id')),', ', sum(if(CallDate>='$onemonthago' and CallDate<'$currentmonth',1,0 and account_id = '$account_id'))) array FROM callers WHERE CallDate >= '$threemonthsago' AND CallDate < '$currentmonth' GROUP BY CallType order by CallType) c on (t.id=c.CallType)");

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)){
$name = $row["name"];
$name_array = $row["array"];
echo $name." ".$name_array."<br />";
}

The simplest way is to use the global variables array and append a serial number to the variable name:
$result = mysql_query("SELECT t.name, ifnull(c.array,'0, 0, 0') array from calltypes t left outer join (SELECT CallType, concat(sum(if(CallDate>='$threemonthsago' and CallDate<'$twomonthsago',1,0 and account_id = '$account_id')),', ', sum(if(CallDate>='$twomonthsago' and CallDate<'$onemonthago',1,0 and account_id = '$account_id')),', ', sum(if(CallDate>='$onemonthago' and CallDate<'$currentmonth',1,0 and account_id = '$account_id'))) array FROM callers WHERE CallDate >= '$threemonthsago' AND CallDate < '$currentmonth' GROUP BY CallType order by CallType) c on (t.id=c.CallType)");

$i = 1;
while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)){
$_GLOBALS['name'.$i] = $row["name"];
$_GLOBALS['name_array'.$i] = $row["array"];
echo $_GLOBALS['name'.$i]." ".$_GLOBALS['name_array'.$i]."<br />";
$i++;
}
