That's what I call it. :) I don't like "hash" because of my association of it with Twitter.

I had never heard of this strange naming until yesterday. Doing some diggin, it seems to originate from either a confusion with, or simplification of, the old typesetter pound sign "℔". I quite like the name "Octothorp" though for this symbol.
But yea, for all all of us Euro-folk pound is £. What would you guys call this one in your ambiguous-symbol-naming world?

The currency doesn't come up in conversation a lot, and the symbol comes up even less.

Exactly. I've never heard that the # is called a pound.

In my neighbourhood it's called "ladder" or "little ladder". But this is of course in a non-english (phone/computer) terminology.

We Swedes call it "fyrkant" (literally four sided) within the context of phone numbers.

Previously: Quid.

But I will now call £ "Squid" given this new information about mysterious Neocoleoidea characters.

In french # is called "dièze" in all situations, regardless if if it in music, computer programming, phones, or wathever. This is what makes the most sense.

£ is normally unused here, but it makes sense to call it "pound" if you ever travelled to U.K.
