Not yet. Their laser isn't that big, and do you know how hard it is to hit something that small and that far away?
(yes, being silly. And I don't know, but I think there is a great big list run by the IAU that does have the names of everything we've decided to name in space. check out http://iau.org/public/themes/naming/ for more info.)
