Well I don't claim to understand the name, but I found this website awhile ago and just discovered it again as I was cleaning out my favorites. Fishs Eddy is an online Dishware store that carries all kinds of fun patterns like some of the ones pictured above: New York Skyline, Polka Dots, and Carnival. I love the variety and random designs that they carry, even some old fashioned American pieces like a Jadeite Pitcher.
The prices are reasonable: $10-15 for a dinner plate, $6 for a glass. You can find some real steals in the sale section, like a $5 pink oval platter, a $12 teapot or a $3 milk glass. I'm going to hang on to this one, I'm sure I'll find a reason to buy something eventually. :)
