In english, there are multiple colloquially used terms for zero. For example, depending on country, you can come across with O, Oh, Nil, Null, Nought, Naught etc.

O or Oh is usually used instead of zero in a sequence of numerals, especially when spoken. For example when someone is saying a telephone number, IP address etc.
