Thanks for your answer but why its illegal?
It is starting with a character and then it can contain any combination or character,number..etc.. so why so?

according to this document
Subsequent characters may be letters, digits, dollar signs, or underscore characters.

"#" is not a letter,digit,dollar sign or an underscore.Thats why your identifier is illegal.
