graph attributes work fine for the GraphML format, at least I have

> g <- graph.ring(10)
> g$name <- "Ring"
> write.graph(g, file="/tmp/test.graphml", format="graphml")
> g2 <- read.graph("/tmp/test.graphml", format="graphml")
> g2$name
[1] "Ring"

I don't know how hard it would be to add graph attributes to the GML
reader/writer, maybe not hard. Anyway, you can follow the issue here:
and you might be interested in
as well.
