Perhaps we are a little nutty, but then we are not too far off topic in this one, what they look like is kinda related to what we would potentially name them...

I named them all:
Germy (Sore throat) , Bad Breathy , Ulcerey
Yeasty , Fungo (Athlete's Foot), Coldy
Marsy , Fluey , Stomach Achey
The Giant Macrobes just get called Bookworm et al.

That would be what my mother would name them, except she would likely pronounce them wrong. It took me several months to get her pronouncing "microbe" right (She used to say microby, it was annoying).
