The symbol is ellipsis. However, the name of the button should be what it's function is. If you have an enter button with the letter E in it, it's still the Enter button...its not the E button.

I used to call the three dots element the Ellipsis Button.

However, I see other technical and UX writers are calling this element the More Button.

How say you?

Cordially,
