How do you call the @ character in your language?

In Polish it's called 'małpa' (a monkey) and in Russian 'собака' (a dog). I believe that the name in your language is also funny :-)

    in hebrew we call @ - strudel, you know, like the pastry ,because it resembles the wrapped up dough of the pastry... but if you want to speak proper hebrew, like a geek, without using foreign words, you'll say כרוכית , kruchit, which is the hebrew name for strudel. karuch-כרוך- means wrapped up. that's it... love those kind of questions!
