The lateral faces of a prism - pentagonal or other - are rectangular.

A rectangular prism has 6 faces. A pentagon prism has 7 faces. Therefore a rectangular prism has one less face than a pentagonal prism.

Each and every prism has two parallel congruent bases. It is the shape of these bases that give the name to the prism: a pentagonal prism has pentagons (not necessarily regular) for its bases.

It is simply called a pentagonal prism. That is a prism based on the 2D shape known as a pentagon.
