Hi,  I have a question about extracting particular elements in a list.

If i have the list {v$2332Period, v$2334Period, v$1231MaxAccel}

How would i go about searching through this list and returning a new
list that has only elements with the word "Period" in them.

So the answer im looking for using the above list would be:

newlist = {v$2332Period, v$2334Period}
