Butterfly nut?

Are any of you familiar with this term? I just now heard it and I'm obsessing a bit over it. (I need food, I've only had coffee so far.)  I don't remember ever calling wingnuts anything but wingnuts. Kinda irks me too. If someone asked me to pick up a few 1/4" butterfly nuts I would not know what they're talking about. Or am I just ignorant? Has it always been named a "butterfly-wing" in particular and I've only ever heard the abbreviated term?

    In order to check out butterfly nuts you have to hold them by their little legs - their wings are kinda fragile....   :p

    I've been in the automotive field my whole career (23 years) and have only ever heard of them referred to as wingnuts ( including repair manuals).

    Yeah I saw that too when I was googling around on the interweb but also lots of regular old wingnuts being called butterfly nuts.

    Only ever heard wingnuts, never heard them called butterfly anything before.

    Replacing a fixture on a concrete block wall. Dropped one of the existing butterfly nuts in the wall. Searching for a new one now.
