Hi..

Why C# is pronounced as C-sharp instead of C-hash? Is there any technical reason behind it?

Good question.

The simple answer would be that as Microsoft has developed this language and they started calling it as C-Sharp so its being called as CSharp instead of C-hash.

I think something to deal with Music.

See in Music, # is remembered as Sharp.
But only microsoft can tell you why they chosen this...

Wikipedia says

The name "C sharp" was inspired from musical notation where a sharp indicates that the written note should be made a half-step higher in pitch
