Has the symbol '@' its own name such as '&' -> ampersand for example?
Or, asking the other way, what is the formal name of the symbol '@'?

Most people just call it 'at'. Some call it 'business at'. ;-)

In my place we called it "alias". Some people have 2 names, so, the names will be written, ie, James @ John :)
