does anyone actually call tefillin "phylacteries"?

In fantasy roleplaying games like D&D, evil undead wizards called liches store their soul in a “phylactery”. While it’s obviously weirdly antisemitic, it’s not a word I ever heard used growing up since it’s not even Hebrew or Yiddish, and dwarves are honestly way more “on the nose” (pardon my pun) with their antisemitism. I wasn’t raised Orthodox though, is phylactery a term people actually use?
