My question is very similar to this one on SO that was closed for being off-topic there and too old to migrate, but it seems on topic here (and maybe on English Language & Usage, but it's not really English, and maybe on User Experience, but form design is not the only application, and other questions about this code are on-topic here.).
Credit cards often have a short code (e.g. 3 digits) on the back (though American Express puts 4 on the front) that helps provide some security, on some not-in-person transactions. According to DalPay, it's either CVV2, CVC2, CAV2, CID, or 4DBC. Synonym.com gives CVV, CVV2, and CVC2. Wikipedia uses CSC, also citing CVV, CVC, and SPC.
It seems to me that each form I fill out uses a different acronym or name and most just expect the reader to know "obviously" what goes in that field, like everyone uses the same term to refer to the same thing. CVV2 was on the last form.
If I were to be making a form that needed this information, what should I call it?
