#222 – C# Is Pronounced “C Sharp”

C# is always written as “C#”, using the number sign ‘#’ (ASCII 35).  This is actually pronounced “C Sharp”, interpreting the number sign as a musical sharp symbol when pronouncing the name of the language.  Though pronounced as “sharp”, we never write it using the Unicode symbol for the musical sharp sign.
