In a poker game, Can I say I have an ace pair?

If so, can I say I have a eight pair meaning I have a pair of eights?

    I don't believe you can.
    Two aces = a pair of aces.
    Two eights = a pair of eights.

    I haven't come across 'an ace pair' or 'an eight pair' before - but I am not a poker player.
