I call it a wallet, but my father (63) calls it a billfold and I though it was slightly humorous. Silly old people!

I've never heard 'billfold' before in my life!

Nor had I, until Darkhack told his father uses it.

A billfold?! What the hell is that?!

Wow! I'm the only one who voted billfold. I usually say billfold, but sometimes I say wallet.

Think about it. Billfold makes a lot more sense than wallet. You take your dollar bills, put them in, and fold them. Billfold.

What is wallet? Sounds like something you should hang on the wall.

I call it billfold, but I rarely have any bills in it.

Most of the time I call it a wallet but sometimes I call it a billfold too.

I've always said wallet, but from this moment on, I'll probably be saying billfold.

A billfold is a place for storing the beaks of aquatic birds. It's not looking good for the Hardy Heron......

Wallet. Bills go in my pocket (folded -- does that make my pocket a billfold?)

Well, here in the UK, we call ladies' wallets "purses". But I think that means something different in your language.
