The craters are named by an IAU committee. You could always try to get elected to it if you want to make your suggestions! Some of its decisions are controversial but most definitely not in this case.

You can call the craters anything you want in the same way that the International Star Registry (if they still exist) will name a star after your dead hamster for a small fee. Unless you are NASA nobody will take any notice.
