piggy bank

I don't know why we traditionally use a ceramic pig, but there it is. The term applies to other shapes as well.

Thanks.

We have a different name for this I thought maybe it has a different name in the English language, too.

Apparently, it's not just an American tradition.

Going way, way back, there was a word in English, “pygg,” which referred to a certain clay. It was used for making all kinds of household objects, including things for storing money. At the time the barbaric Saxons learned to write, “pygg” was probably pronounced to rhyme with “pug,” but as the pronunciation of “y” changed, “pygg” came to be pronounced about like “pig,” and the banks were shaped like pigs as a joke, or because of confusion of the meaning.
