You can't. The '_' character is a special purpose character in Mathematica and cannot be used as part of a symbol name.

Of course you could do something like ToString[#]<>"_"&/@{x1, x2, x3}. But I doubt having a list of strings is what you want.

If you indicated what your overall goal is, I or someone else here might be able to suggest a solution to the problem.
