Luke Wroblewski shared an illustrative image on Twitter portraying the names by what different menus are called by. We use these menus on a regular basis but very few of us have ever shown the curiosity to know their names. 

The assigned names are quite weird. For instance, the three-dot horizontal icons are called the Meatballs menu whereas the three-horizontal line menus are called the Hamburger menu.
