Well, They are currently nameless, and I have owned some before whos names were Hermie and Hermione... (So i need something a little more "creative"... )
My mom bought me two Apple size Hermit Crabs... they are way awesome. and about three times the size of the ones we use to have... i only got pics of one of them, cuz the other one is shy and keeps hiding when i look at him. LOL so here is pics...

They are cool looking. What's their care like? My son wanted a couple of those little underwater crabs. But they are brackish and I can't add salt to my tank so they are a no go.

Sorry I'm no help with names. I'd probably just name them Crabby. LOL

How exciting!!! I used to have hermit crabs!!! They were so much fun. I used to take them outside in the summer and let them run around in the driveway, and spray them with a spray bottle. They loved it!!! And I loved it when they changed shells! They're tricky little things! And SO easy to care for. I'll admit, sometimes I didn't feed them for 2 or 3 days :-X But they took 3 years to eat their food, so it was ok! :D ;D

Congrats on the new additions!!!

Apple sized..they must be huge! Since you liked Sweeney Todd so much, I think Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett would be ideal names :)

On that same note...Jo, how about Benjamin and Lucy. (Benjamin being Sweeny's real name and Lucy his wife...for those of you who don't know the movie).

Something pre-trauma Sweeny...haha. ..that way he's not inclined to go cutting off anyones head. bahahaha.
