I like the exclamation mark! It can represent so many things. I also like the ellipse.

Ellipse. Because, it's one of the more uncommonly names for a Punctuation Mark. Also because it illustrates action and unknownness. And because it's awesome.

Semicolon/elipse are my favourites!

Mine is the ellipse. Although I never knew it had a name, I use it all the time! Quite useful...

After that would probably be the exclamation mark. I love it!
