In my C++ book, it's called an "arrow operator".

Dont you never ever try to pronounce it ! This symbol is pure evil !
Howard L., a young programmer from Providence (USA) pronounced it and he
then became a famous horror stories writer. Stephen K, a young
programmer from Dunnowhere (USA) tried to pronounce it and became a
world-famous horror stories writer. Believe me : some symbols are better
left unpronounced, unless you don't fear becoming a famous horror
stories writer...
