Yup! My MK1 Le Mans is called Francesca, and my 9T is called Ingrid. :)

Never name my cars though, got no real attachment to them at all....

R9T - Ursula
H-D Ultra Limited - Joanie; it was red and named after the bombshell on Mad Men
H-D Street Glide - Jennifer; as in Hudson, since it was brown and the sexiest brown name I could think of - besides my wife's.
Kawasaki Vulcan Drifter - The Other Woman, since I had at least half a chance of not taking one to the chops after being asked, "Where have you been?", and replying, "Out with The Other Woman."
Suzuki GS1100E - big blue; because it was bike and blue.
None of the others had names.

My 9T is called Marilyn
Reasons listed below:
She reminds you of a bygone era.
She is very pleasing to the eye, some would say sexy.
Great curves.
Appears to be a blonde but isn't really.
Looks very classy, but deep down, not so much.
Is heaps of fun to be around but if you are not careful she will get you into trouble.
Well known around the world for her two prominent. . .cylinders .

Call mine Brutus too. Gave it that name the second day I took it out for a ride-it-like-you-stole-it run in.
I also had a KLR 600 which came with the name Donald. I kept the name as it suited it down to ground. Other than that, my old Meguro K was called Megan, which admittedly lacks any imagination what so ever. Everything else was just called 'The' Triumph, Suzuki, Honda, Yamaha or whatever was slapped on the tank. Though I still have a Bonnevile T100, which is called Trumpet—again no imagination.
