I live in Poznan- town in western Poland. LOT gives names only to it`s 767 planes and the youngest (manufactured in 1997) SP-LPC is named "Poznan".
I used to fly onboard "Poznan" once (HER-WAW).

Ok, thanks for your reply, but how does it concern you? I asked about planes named after your country or city/town?

Oh yes.....Three (!!) Boeing 747-400 actually, all Lufthansa:

Born in Baden Württemberg:
D-ABVC Boeing 747-430 "Baden-Württemberg"

Living in Berlin:
D-ABVA Boeing 747-430 "Berlin"

Working in Frankfurt/Main:
D-ABVF Boeing 747-430 "Frankfurt am Main"

All three are old-timers with LH, they were bought in 1989/1989/1990, 368 seats each!

Hi,
my home town is Schwäbisch Gmünd, Germany (60.000 Inhabitants),
and Lufthansa has a 737-300 named after my city.
Moreover, there is a helicopter of the US-Army named after my city, too.
O.K., bye,

Yes, there are LH planes named after the cities

- where I was born

- where I live

- where I work

(two 340-300, one 320 respectively)

And of course each of the three Lands in which these cities are located has a 747-400 - except maybe Nordrhein-Westfalen, the last one was a 747-200 which is now scrapped, but the there will be another one sooner or later - if there isn´t one yet.

Swissair earlier named all Aircrafts with names of Cantons and Cities in Switzerland. 747-200 HB-IGA and B have been Zurich and Geneva, HB-IGC to G have been named Zurich, Geneva, Basel, Bern and Ticino and so on.
Swiss International is going to name all aircrafts as per Swiss Mountains.
