I'm trying to create a simple list of years for a dropdown list in MVC4.  I can do it by brute force with the following:

            var startYear = 1945;
            var finishYear = 2000;

            var yearList = new List<RegistrationViewModel.Year>
            {
                new RegistrationViewModel.Year {Id = 1950, Name = "1950"},
                new RegistrationViewModel.Year {Id = 1951, Name = "1951"},
                new RegistrationViewModel.Year {Id = 1952, Name = "1952"},
                new RegistrationViewModel.Year {Id = 1953, Name = "1953"},
                new RegistrationViewModel.Year {Id = 1954, Name = "1954"}
etc.
            };;

However, I'd like to do it with a for (int i = startYear ; i < finishYear+1; i++) loop.

Any assistance for this tired brain in doing this greatly appreciated.
