Your question is a bit hard to parse, but you seem to be asking how to get the thing that looks roughly like this (use a fixedwidth font do see it) _______ / \/ into an axis label? Well, that depends on the terminal driver you're using. Some have this letter in their Symbol fonts (PostScript, e.g., does), some even allow you write a real math equation using properly formatted sqrt signs (like the TeX family of drivers, including pslatex and epslatex: set xlabel '$\sqrt{x^2+5}$'
