Why call it "Shifrah & Puah"?

So the king of Egypt spoke to the Hebrew midwives, one of whom was called Shifrah and the other, Puah. And he said, "When you deliver Hebrew women, look at the birth stool. If it is a boy, kill him; if it is a girl, let her live. “But the midwives feared G‑d, and they did not do as the king of Egypt had told them; they helped the boys live. The king of Egypt summoned the midwives and demanded of them, “Why have you done this, and kept the boys alive?” The midwives answered Pharaoh, “Because the Hebrew women are not like Egyptian women. They are skilled…before the midwife would even get to them they would have already given birth.” "G‑d dealt kindly with the Midwives, the people continued to increase and grew very strong. Because the midwives feared G‑d, He granted them dynasties.

(Exodus 1:15-21)
