Setting session name when calling screen from script

I'm calling screen from a script and want to set the session name based on run-time parameters. So I'm using a command similar to:

screen -S $VARNAME

Screen seems to just skip the variable. Is there a way to persuade screen to expand $VARNAME to FOO? I'd rather not have to build a case statement and hardcode every possible option.

Screen version 4.00.02 (FAU) 5-Dec-03
AIX 5.3
