A question that will most likely evoke dozens of answers. Here are
three of mine:

Table[FromCharacterCode[{c1, c2, c3}], {c1, ToCharacterCode["a"][[1]],
     ToCharacterCode["b"][[1]]}, {c2, ToCharacterCode["a"][[1]],
    ToCharacterCode["z"][[1]]}, {c3, ToCharacterCode["a"][[1]],
   ] // Flatten // Column

StringJoin @@@
  Tuples[{CharacterRange["a", "b"], CharacterRange["a", "z"],
    CharacterRange["a", "z"]}] // Column

StringJoin[{c1, c2, c3}],
{c1, CharacterRange["a", "b"]},
{c2, CharacterRange["a", "z"]},
{c3, CharacterRange["a", "z"]}
   ] // Flatten // Column
