Krabby (in Japanese: クラブ “Crab” ) is a Water-type Pokémon.
Krabby evolves into Kingler (in Japanese: キングラー “Kingler” ) at level 28, where it remains a Water-type. (There is not a Mega-Evolution form for this Pokemon yet — but if there were, I would hope that it would be a water and STEEL dual-type.)
I like to name a Krabby “Herman” as a nod to the British pop band “Herman’s Hermits”. Hermit crabs, get it? Hermits’ front-man Peter Noonan is great in this vintage clip of “Mrs. Brown You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter”.
Perhaps, “Mrs. Brown” would be a good name for female Krabbys?
Real hermit crabs are much smaller than Herman’s Hermits, but crabs can make interesting pets.
Another possible name is “Cancer” or “Kancer” after the Zodiac sign of The Crab.
A female could be named “Patty” or “Pattie” after the Craby Patty sandwich from SpongeBob. Mr Krabbs would approve.
I think that “Boston” or “Boston Crab” would be interesting. “The Boston Crab” is a famous wrestling hold. If you ask me, this hold — like most wrestling moves — is better appreciated with lady wrestlers.
I have used the name “Klinger” for Kingler. Klinger was of course the famous character from the American TV show M*A*S*H.
I like the name “KrispyKreme” after the doughnuts, even though it is not crab related. The exoskeletons of a crab are hard and “crisp” like I suppose.
I have also used the name “Alaska” as in Alaska King Crabs.
