My 1940 Royal Enfield WD C/O is named Flynn, and my 1942 Chevy Truck is named Grover.
I thought it might have been named after Leftenant Gruber from Allo Allo with his "little tank"

I think the fact that there are so many possible interpretations of the name clinches it. My bike's name is Gruber. I can leave people guessing about why. Wink
