Do these connectors have a name?

Does anyone know the name of these electrical connection things. Used instead of soldering something together if it needs to be taken apart. They are screwed onto a bolt with a nut. the bolt passing the current to the connector which is attached to a wire.

We call it a non-insulated crimp lug. It has no electrical insulation around the crimp because it is made for higher than normal temperatures. Also for this reason it is likely made from a harder material than the usual tinned copper. The size will be determined by the diameter or cross sectional area of the wire it is made to fit on, and the size of the ring.

Everything has a name. The fun part is trying to google a part using a visual description.
