Then there are the younger users that know "#" only as "hash-tag" and
not "pound-sign". Yes many of the "standard" characters have different
names depending on the languages used.

In the UK, "#" is more commonly known as "hash" or "number sign".

For us, "pound sign" usually means "£" ;o)

Windows Vista's character map (and probably Windows 7's as well?) displays the name of the selected character (and can search for characters by name). It calls # "Number Sign" and £ "Pound Sign". I think those are the "official" names defined by Unicode.
