Keyword Query: Names Of Chess Pieces
Interpretation:
You want to know what each Chess Piece is called.

Experience Chess Players usually distinguish between Pawns and Pieces, but we'll mention both groups here.

So, in short, the names are as follows:

  • Pawn
  • Knight
  • Bishop
  • Rook
  • Queen
  • King

And here's what they look like (roughly ... the graphics are from Microsoft's "Chess Titans" software/game, but other games/software may style the Piece slightly different ... However, in general, the form isn't radically altered form what you see here).
