What you ask doesn't quite make sense! The entries in s1 are numbers; the entries in s2 are symbols (or possibly symbols that have been given values of some type or other - numbers, strings, lists, whatever). So in the list you want as result, what, for example, does the entry 1c even mean? Do you want the _number_ 1 to be made into a one-character string, the _symbol_ (or value of that symbol) c to be made into a string, and then the two strings concatenated? If so, the following will do it: ss1 = ToString /@ s1; ss2 = ToString /@ s2; Flatten@Transpose@Outer[StringJoin, ss1, ss2] If not, please explain further what the objects actually are and what kind of entries you want s3 to have.
