There are many variations of pancake recipes. There are also many names: griddle cakes or griddle cakes or hot cakes or flapjacks.
We are sure that recipes vary some by region, but what is probably more consistent is the use of the various names. we believe "pancake" is the most popular or at least most widely understood name.
