Creating Unique Dictionary Variables from List

P: n/a

Hello All,
I'm attempting to create multiple dictionaries at once, each with unique
variable names. The number of dictionaries i need to create depends on the
length of a list, which was returned from a previous function.
The pseudo code for this problem would be:

returnedlist = [x,y,z]
count = 0
for i in returnedlist:
if count < len(returnedlist):
# then create a dictionary (beginning with variable dic) and add a
unique ending such that
# my final dictionary name would be dic + count for each i

Any ideas about this?
