This list of hermit crab names can help – whether you’re looking for funny or creative or clever hermit crabs names, you’ll likely find the perfect name listed here.

You could also go for some other sea-related themes with your names for a pet hermit crab, including “Shelldon,” “Shelly,” “Shellfish,” “Seamore,” and “Crabby.”

If you’re looking for punny hermit crab names, there are several.
