There is no particular name. It need not be a regular polygon - for example, consider a stretched hexagon.

There is no generic name. Any polygon with 4 or more sides can have 2 parallel sides. There are also non-polygonal shapes that can have parallel sides: for example, a circle that is stretched out into a cigar shape can have two parallel sides.

Paralellagram * * * * * No. A parallelogram (check spelling) has two PAIRS of parallel sides which is not the same as exactly two parallel sides.

For a 4-sided polygon (a quadrilateral), the shape is a trapezoid (trapezium in the UK).*The question was copied in and omitted the "4 sided" restriction. There are innumerable irregular polygons that have a single pair of parallel sides, those that have 5 or more sides.
