They do, take a look here
if you click on more, see what you find

The wikipedia tries to explain which ones are truly GNU/Linux

There is an article to the 7 most influential GNU/Linux Distributions

Like I have said before, it should not matter but there are many people that do take offense, if you say Linux only, they want to exert their muscle and say GNU/Linux is the appropriate name.  There are no correct answers here :)
