OK...I scanned a few comments to get an answer. I guess it's not there. But I have a saying to share. 

Why is there a Highway to Hell and a Stairway to Heaven. Is that because of the anticipated traffic pattern?

It has different names, depending upon usage.  Vertical bar and pipe are among those names.  See Wikipedia at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vertical_bar

Depends on whom you are talking to.

If the conversation includes ANSI character users such as code jockeys, it will be referred to in that community as the 'vertical bar.'

Pipe is referring to the 'split vertical bar.'
