void star

What do you call this symbol (assuming you have a font that shows it): ✡?

In England it’s usually called a Star of David (which is also the Unicode name for the character), and here in Israel it’s a Magen David (מגן דוד), which literally means Shield of David. In America, people seem to call it a Jewish star (though it has only been a distinctly Jewish symbol for 100 years or so), and in Arabic there’s a generation shift to Khatam Suleiman (خاتم سليمان), Solomon’s Seal.

And now, Google translator has found a new name for it: stomach David.
