Python - How can i print a certain dictionary field from many dictionaries within a list?

I am currently working on a Guess Who like game for school work and I cannot seem to get this to work. What I am trying to do is get the field "Name" printed from all the dictionaries below within a list.

Greg = {"Name":"Greg", "HairLength":"Short", "HairColour":"Brown", "FacialHair":"Yes", "Jewellery":"Yes", "Hat":"No", "Lipstick":"No", "Gender":"Male"}

Chris = {"Name":"Chris", "HairLength":"Long", "HairColour":"Blonde", "FacialHair":"No", "Jewellery":"No","Hat":"Yes", "Lipstick":"Yes", "Gender":"Male"}

Jason = {"Name":"Jason", "HairLength":"Short", "HairColour":"Brown", "FacialHair":"Yes", "Jewellery":"No","Hat":"Yes", "Lipstick":"No", "Gender":"Male"}

Clancy = {"Name":"Clancy", "HairLength":"Bald", "HairColour":"Red", "FacialHair":"Yes", "Jewellery":"No", "Hat":"No","Lipstick":"No", "Gender":"Male"}

Betty = {"Name":"Betty", "HairLength":"Short", "HairColour":"Blonde", "FacialHair":"No", "Jewellery":"Yes","Hat":"Yes", "Lipstick":"Yes", "Gender":"Female"}

Helen = {"Name":"Helen", "HairLength":"Short", "HairColour":"Brown", "FacialHair":"No", "Jewellery":"No", "Hat":"No","Lipstick":"Yes", "Gender":"Female"}

Selena = {"Name":"Selena", "HairLength":"Long", "HairColour":"Brown", "FacialHair":"No", "Jewellery":"Yes","Hat":"No", "Lipstick":"No", "Gender":"Female"}

Jacqueline = {"Name":"Jacqueline", "HairLength":"Long", "HairColour":"Red", "FacialHair":"Yes", "Jewellery":"Yes", "Hat":"No","Lipstick":"No", "Gender":"Female"}


AISuspects = ([Greg, Chris, Jason, Clancy, Betty, Selena, Helen,
Jacqueline])
UserSuspects = ([Greg, Chris, Jason, Clancy, Betty, Selena, Helen, Jacqueline])

print("AISuspects:")
#Here i want it to print the field "Name" in every dictionary within the list AISuspects


print("UserSuspects:")
#Here i want it to print the field "Name" in every dictionary within the list UserSuspects

Answer

You can use a list comprehension to get a list of all the suspects' names

suspects_names = [suspect['Name'] for suspect in AISuspects]

Then you can use print(' '.join(suspect_names))

If you don't mind printing each name in a new line, just use a for loop:

for suspect in AISuspects:
    print(suspect['Name'])

Take care of those parenthesis around the lists definitions, you don't need them and they're usually used to define tuples, so I'd get rid of them
