That doesn't make a great deal of sense no the surface. If you're using the default document routing is a hash of the <uniqueKey> modulo (# shards), so there's no good way for you to put docs all from GB on the same shard.
If you're using the "implicit router", you can simply use the collections CREATESHARD and give it whatever name you want... I suspect this an "XY" problem. Why do you want to name your shards? If you tell us the use-case, perhaps we can have more cogent responses.
