[R] Multiple time series and their names

Suppose I have multiple time series with names for each one, for example,

x <- ts(matrix(rnorm(30,0,1),10,3), names=c("Juan", "Tuey", "Trey"),

So now, as I start to explore these series, if I do everything at once, the
stay attached to the series.  For example,
plot(x) # gives a plot of the series with their names
acf(x)  # gives the ACFs & CCFs with names attached

But if I want to explore what's going on with Juan, from what I can gather, 
I have to do something like this
(or acf(x[,1])... or similar things) but this doesn't keep the name Juan.

My question: Is there a way, without making a data frame [which seems to
destroy the
time series attributes(??) - this seems to be the only answer I can find on
that allows me to keep track of the names?  That way, for example, I don't
have to 
remember that the 18th series is Martha.  

x$Juan, x$Tuey, x$Trey, would be nice ... but that doesn't work.

Thanks in advance.
