W3C Character Reference Chart has this and also HTML/hexadecimal equivalents. Should be an easy scrape, or a not very tedious manual job.


The official Unicode names list has names for all characters.

The official names list does not contain the corresponding symbols, but those are easy to get in any markup or programming language.

Alternately, you can use sources such as Wikipedia, fileformat.info or codepoints.net for the same.
