Yep! Here in the South, we not only give 'em names, but most of 'em have TWO names. You'll hear folks say "Yep, I live right over there at Billy Bob". Or, "My sister-in-law shops over there at Jimmy Bob". Works out real well.
I love 3 buildings with names. Two are in DC named for distant relatives, but my all time favorite is the Dakota in NY. I have read the history of the building, and my dream is to one day stand in front of it.
