Bruno -
very interesting. To further complete your impressive list of translations for the @ sign:
"Klammeraffe" would be German spoken in Germany. In German-speaking Switzerland, people say "Affenschwanz", meaning "monkey's tail".

(Looking forward to a list of translations for the # sign, officially "Raute", Swiss-German "Gartenhag". (You know you've been in Switzerland too long when... Swiss terms first come to mind.))
