need names

So I bought a crab last week and I need a name for her. I also have a black mystery snail. I still don't know how to tell between males and females. I wouldn't mind getting a name that suits for both male and female.

In some species, the female has equally-sized claws while the male does not.

I know the crab is a female just by looking under it's belly. That is how I could tell when I was younger and still can. But as I grew I knew about the claw. I have these names written down for the crab. Aphrodite, Coral, Ruby, Rosie/Rosey, Shelley/Shelly. If anyone else can come up with something let me know. I still haven't decided yet with which one to go with.
