Pie Charts: Names

The Wiki entry on "pie charts" (aka circle charts) describes them as a "circular statistical graphic, which is divided into slices to illustrate numerical proportion." Most of us have made at least one.

I never knew that there was such a cornucopia of names for them world wide. The search for them began when "public-policy researcher Eric Hittinger learnt that in France, the term for a pie chart is a 'camenbert,' he was rightly compelled to created a pie chart of pie-chart names."

See it here on Twitter which includes a fascinating thread of comments and pictures. How about  "bracelet chart" for starters?
