they allready have names. The name is

cases(1,1) and cases(1,2)

Why do you need to have other names for them? You did not
give a reason for it.

Better to learn how to use index notations in Matlab to access variables.

So, what will you do what you have 1 million by 1 million matrix?

Where will you then come up with 1 zillion names from?
