No, the form used in the Unicode annotations in English are LEFT
POINTING GUILLEMET for U+00AB, and RIGHT POINTING GUILLEMET for U+00BB.
The Unicode names are actually LEFT/RIGHT-POINTING DOUBLE ANGLE
QUOTATION MARK. The word "guillemet" appears in English dictionaries,
but is known more or less only to typographers.
