To display variable names along with their values I can put them in
quotes first using

quote[var_] := ToString[var]

Then this works
quote[Unevaluated @ cVWGL]
but this fails
but since this fails
Unevaluated /@ {cVThGL, cVWGL}
{Unevaluated[900], Unevaluated[20.]}

I can't see a way to protect members of a list of variables except by
putting quotes around them by hand. Any suggestions?
