    If you refer to the sign @ in the context of an e-mail adress yo can say "at" Example:If you have this: yourname@domain.com, You can say "yourname at domain dot com" It's as simple as that. If you refer to the sign in a different context, you can also say arroba, just like in spanish
    i think we just call it the "at sign." boring, huh?

    howstuffworks gives examples of what other cultures call it:
    apestaart - Dutch for "monkey's tail"
    snabel - Danish for "elephant's trunk"
    kissanhnta - Finnish for "cat's tail"
    klammeraffe - German for "hanging monkey"
    kukac - Hungarian for "worm"
    dalphaengi - Korean for "snail"
    grisehale - Norwegian for "pig's tail"
    sobachka - Russian for "little dog"

    i use it for panda eyes @_@ hehehe.

    boring but interesting. those little details can put a life into big problems. by the way, how do you call "&", i don't even know the name in my own language.

    @- at
    &- and
    :)
    the & is called an 'ampersand'
