The Latin family name Pectinidae means “comb” and possibly refers to the comb-like appearance of scallop shells.  Scallops are saltwater clams that can actually swim by rapidly opening and closing their valves.  Their shells are one of the most recognized seashells and have been depicted in art and architecture throughout history around the world.
