  • The Loo – Primarily a “British” Term for Toilet.
  • The Dunny – an Australian expression for an outhouse or outside toilet.
  • The Jacks – Irish term for Toilet.
  • The Privy – The Privy is an old fashioned term used more in the North of England and in Scotland; “privy” is an old alternative for “private”
  • The CR – Used in the Philippines , short for “Comfort Room”
  • The “Netty” – Another “English” term for Toilet …
