It would help if you'd show us what symbols you're asking about.

Why do you want to know their names?

'true' and 'false' are not symbols.

These symbols may have different terms in general speech than they have in the specific terminology of the programming language (C, C++, Java, etc.) that they are used in.

For example, the symbol "!" is normally called an "exclamation mark", but in the C, C++ and Java programming languages it's called "not". Likewise, "%" is usually called "percent", but in these programming languages it's called "mod" or "modulo".

Here are more from C and C++:
+ is "plus"
- is "minus"
+= is often called "plus equals"
*= is often called "times equals"
++ is often called "plus plus" or "increment"

You will find some of the answers you're looking for here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operators_in_C_and_C++
