Dynamically placed MovieClip names AS3? :(

Hey all,
I have created the following code to place several instances of a MovieClip in my library on the stage and give each of them a name and label for use as navigation. What I would like to do is assign each instance a unique instance name and attach a function to it. Most of this code is working, when it is run it creates the instances and assigns them names and when I click on each instance, the trace function returns the unique names I assigned them. However, when I try to attach a function to the instance, Flash does not recognize it by name, and I get the decompiler error “Access of undefined property LinksBtn_mc” Any ideas guys?
Thanks in advance

var navName:Array = ["Home", "About", "Services", "Portfolio", "Contact", "Links"];
var _navBtn:navBtn;
var _navBtnX:Number;
var _navBtnY:Number;

stage.addEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, createNav);

function createNav(EVENT):void
	_navBtnX = 50;
	_navBtnY = 10;
	for (var i:Number = 0; i < navName.length; i++) {
		_navBtn = new navBtn();
		_navBtn.x = _navBtnX;
		_navBtn.y = _navBtnY;
		_navBtnX += _navBtn.width + 2;
		_navBtn.navLabel_txt.text = navName*;
		_navBtn.name = navName* + "Btn_mc";
		_navBtn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, checkName);
		stage.removeEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, createNav);

function checkName(event:MouseEvent):void
	trace (event.target.name);
	LinksBtn_mc.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, runMe);

function runMe(event:MouseEvent):void
	trace ("WTF");
