This solution might not be efficient for a large "names.out" or "market.out" :-)

$ cat names.out

$ cat market.out

$ cat
for ns in `cat names.out`
        for ms in `cat market.out`
                echo "Creating $ns.$ms.$1"
                touch "$ns.$ms.$1"

$ ./ 01232008.batch1.dat
Creating n1.m1.01232008.batch1.dat
Creating n1.m2.01232008.batch1.dat
Creating n2.m1.01232008.batch1.dat
Creating n2.m2.01232008.batch1.dat
