This script returns the list of object names that exist in any given selection. For example, if you have 100 objects loaded (viz. ligand poses from small molecule docking) and select all atoms w/in some cutoff, then you have a selection.

from pymol import cmd, stored
def getNamesInSel(sel, sorted=0, reversed=0, quiet=1):

rList = cmd.get_object_list('(' + sel + ')')
# if you want the list reversed or sorted,
