    Depends what the context is? In general it's referred to as a curly bracket.

    Maybe you are thinking of parentheses which is usually used for ( )...

    Inverted brackets i think :?

    Uses of “{” and “}”

    * are used in some programming languages to define the beginning and ending of blocks of code or data. Languages which use this convention are said to belong to the curly bracket family of programming languages
    * are used to represent certain type definitions or literal data values, such as a composite structure or associative array
    * in math they enclose elements of a set and denote a set
    * in Curl they are used to delimit expressions and statements (similar to Lisp's use of parenthesis).
    * in Pascal they define the beginning and ending of comments
    * in most regular expression syntaxes, they are used as quantifiers, matching n repetitions of the previous group
    * in Perl they are also used to refer to elements of an associative array
    * in Tcl they enclose a string to be substituted without any internal substitutions being performed
    * in mIRC slang, two braces with the enclosing one first represent a kiss: }{
    * in Python they are used for dictionarie

    Yes, I remember the name thank you.

    Not stupid at all. I once spent a whole night tossing and turning in bed trying to remember the name of a protractor. Sometimes these things eat away at you. lol
