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

[] <- these are supposedly brackets.

>>Are you totally sure??<<

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).
