https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hook-and-loop_fastener It has many names. Hook-and-loop fasteners, hook-and-pile fasteners, touch fasteners, and velcro.

My question is simple. Which is the most frequently used name in our daily live? I ask because the name Hook-and-loop fasteners is too long. I doubt people use it in daily life. Usually names that long have alternative short names. so I would like to confirm if it is velcro. Thank you.

In speech velcro is probably the most common. It certainly is in my experience. However in writing the word may need to be avoided for legal reasons.

  • I'd say only avoid it if absolutely necessary. Velcro is the common name for this item; anything else would be extremely weird in most contexts. – the-baby-is-you Feb 5 at 7:57

Probably depends on on the country, but velcro would be the most common.
