C++ what is the name for a "}" ??? - lol silly and simple

Hello Experts Exchnage ,

lol I have a super taxing question this time. Can any one tell us what  "{" or "}"  names are. Do you call them curly brackets or what???. Lol this will settle a little debate im having with someone.
Yes I am asking the name of the } { bracket things!!!

Thanks in advance Paladin

I've always been told they were called braces. So that is what I use.

[] <- these are supposedly brackets.

again, that is what I was told they were called when I started programming. Doesn't necessarily mean they are called that by all programmers though. I'm sure there are other names that are used interchangeably with brace. Wait for some more experts to respond and see what they say.

( and ) = parenthesis (for me anyway). the other two are right (in my opinion).
