We may be able to help, but before we can make a recommendation I'd like to see what you have installed now. Specifically, I'd like to see a sample removed, and from an angle that clearly shows its end. If you can provide dimensions, that would also be a huge help.

As for nomenclature, it really depends. Every manufacturer likes to use something different. "Bug flap" is a common term, but "weatherstripping" can also apply.
