Here in New Mexico, we have blue corn pancakes. I know there are also kinds like whole wheat, buckweat, etc.

Also pancakes themselves have different names: griddle cakes, johnny cakes (I think this is the same), flapjacks, etc.

What other names and types of pancakes do you know about?

Buttermilk pancakes are my fav, slightly tangy, so the sweetness of the syrup comes out.

I also really like chocolate chip pancakes, spread with peanut butter and drizzled with syrup

Back in the day-before she went off to prison- Martha Stewart had a receipe for an eggy yeasty pancake. It was great! Have made it several times. But it has to sit in fridge overnight to rise and get light and fluffy- just make sure the bowl is big enough to handle the amount of batter- second time I made it, I doubled the receipe but not the container- You guessed it! my husband woke me on Sunday AM- saying "Not sure what's supposed to be in the bowl in the fridge- but it's trying to escape". It was like a scene from I Love Lucy- the batter was everywhere!

In our house it was always Johnny Cakes, made with Jiffy corn bread mix. I still prefer them to buttermilk pancakes any day.

Actually, pancakes and flapjacks aren't the same at all. Flapjacks are a larger diameter and thinner, with some crispy outer edges on 'em.
I love flapjacks wayyy more than pancakes! (with the edges blackened!)

What about crepes?

Other names - journey cakes, hoecakes, and *cakes - where the * is replaced with the main ingrediant - corncakes, oatcakes

Journey cakes, or johnny cakes, and hoe cakes are not the same as pancakes. They are just a type of cornbread cooked on something flat.

Same here Michael. Hoecakes are thick cornbread cakes cooked in the skillet or deep pan. Johnny cakes are small cakes about 2 1/2" to 3" round cooked flat or fried.

I think what you are referring to is called a "Pannekoekun". Obviously, I may have spelled it wrong! We used to have a chain of these "Pannekoekun Huis'" in the Twin Cities and I adored them! My favorite was the Apple Pannekoekun, it had bits of apple in the batter and was served with a scoop of cinnamon ice cream. Come to think of it, it is less like a crepe because it comes out of the oven inflated and it deflated as the waitress ran it to the table.

Now that I think of it my friends mom, who was Scandinavian, made a thin crepe-like pancake and would roll them and serve them with Mrs. Butterworths. I never heard of Mrs. Butterworths before. She called them "skavaars." I haven't had them in thirty years but can remember how good they were.

The Dutch Baby looks more like a volcano, hollow in the middle. The pannekeouken isn't indented like that; it just deflates. But they are probably in the same family. By the way, there is one Pannekeouken Huis that I know of in the Twin Cities. (Maplewood). I have a hard time getting my hubby to go there because they used to serve their beverages in mason jars, which he hates. I heard that they don't do that anymore.

A good Saturday morning recipe for pancakes is to take any beer you have left over from Friday night and add it to your mix of choice in place of milk or water.... adds a lot to your basic pancake-from-a- box. Dark microbrews have the best flavor, but a light hefeweizen is nice too...

Buckwheat pancakes are nice for a change, periodically. They have a hearty, backwoods taste.

If you can get your hands on some Boysenberry syrup it's "killer bee" on buttermilk pancakes.

Have none of you people ever eaten a home made sour dough pancake?  I understand "to each his own" but most people tend to like what I like,  and hands down every person that I've cooked some for acclaimed them their new favorite pancake. 
 
Imho..   buttermilk pancakes need too much syrup to make edible...  or just suck up too much syrup so as not to be dry. 
 
Every Sunday while I was growing up my Dad would make breakfast every Sunday.  He said it was just allowing my Mom to get a little extra rest...   but truth was he liked to cook a little.  Most sunday's it was sourdough...   sometimes pancakes, sometimes waffles, and in every blue moon buckwheat sourdoughs. 
 
There is no special secret to sourdough pancakes.  You just need to make a starter. 
 
If any one is ever interested give me shout.

  After the Boss gets back from Russia we will be adding sour dough pancakes to our already extensive menu. We already offer buttermilk and whole wheat and honey cakes but this being Alaska and all, people have been asking for sour dough cakes lately.

 As an aside; I think that the sour dough in Alaska came up here from San Francisco via the miners that came after the 1849 gold strike played out and the Alaska gold fields of Fairbanks were discovered.

Here in Western N.Y. there is an amazing place called The Maple Tree Inn. It is only open when the sap flows, from late february to early April. All you can eat buckwheat pancakes that are very fluffy, almost like buttermilk ones, but with that buckwheat flavor. the sausagge is from a local butcher shop and very tasty. All syrup is pure fresh maple. I recommend this to anybody who lives in the Northeast, worth the drive. I have met people from as far as Montreal. It is about 1 1/2 hours south of Rochester in Angelica.

I adore Dutch Babies, like those at Original Pancake House.  They're easy to make and so impressive--serve simply with sugar and fresh lemon juice.  I also make Meyer lemon ricotta pancakes--they are soft pillows of heaven--no syrup required, imho, and I'm a Grade B maple syrup head.  Cream of wheat pancakes at Flappy Jack's in Glendora, CA are also yummy.

A Dutch Baby is a version of a Popover.......I make them all the time, adding fruit for the least bit and dusting them with confectionary sugar

I like to play around with both "add-ins" to pancakes and liquids used. Some of my home-made "bacon" that has been cooked..or summer sausage is a nice savoury alternative.  Maybe some day I'll try clams or Scallops with a Butter/Dill sauce for dinner.
 
For Breakfast here.......Blueberry, banana (sometimes helped with mashed banana), or strawberry are the most asked for.
 
Add ins....vanilla............lemon peel....reconstituted!!!!! Penzey's is especially good.  Cinnamon.
 
Even if I'm not using my home mix with baking soda, Bisquick can be fun with changes of liquid.some good:
Lemonade
OJ
Cranberry Juice
 
Some not as successful:
Coke
Sprite
Chicken broth..thought it could be and "underlayer" for a chicken stew
 
May try chunks of melon some day will have to re-adjust the liquids.  I tend to make my pancakes on the runny/eggy side rather than thick floury ones
 
And No.Johnny cakes are NOT pancakes although similar.  Love them with dinner or whenever I am in Rhode Island......but butter hits them, never ever syrup.

Potato is my favorite

 
I'm with Susan. I like flapjacks and all the rest but potato pancakes are my favourite. It's partially due to my Lithuanian background I suppose but the other reason is that real potato pancakes are so tough to find even in dedicated pancake joints. Sour cream with potato pancakes is a must, however.
 
I like raspberry syrup on ordinary flapjacks if that's offered.

I like many kinds of pancakes, but some of the best that we make come from recipes from the King Arthur Flour Companion cook book. The Zephyr Pancakes in there are rich and just so delicious it hurts. And the Ginger Bread Pancakes may be the best thing I've ever had for breakfast. No restaurant pancake's ever come close to them.

I used to love the "German" pancakes at IHOP.
But for the last ten years I've been making my own buckwheat pancakes using about half "Bob's Red Mill" organic Buckwheat Flour Pancake Mix with about half Bob's organic High Fiber Pancake & Waffle (whole grain) Mix. And I use buttermilk (actually, organic Kefir) instead of milk plus eggs and all the usual suspects. Especially, Cinnamon. My "secret ingredient"!
Off course, my pancakes are topped with butter and 100% pure
Vermont grade 'B' fancy maple syrup.

I'm a huge potato pancake fan but they are hard to find let alone good ones. I prefer them thin, slightly crisp and with a hint of green onion.

DRY with lots of texture.  Very dry.  Extremely dry.
 
They were served with eggs and bacon.  I put salsa on the eggs.  It was a Mexican breakfast.

I know it will sound kind of weird. One day, I make pancake, a cup of honey and some butter on the table. I had boil some sausage, pan fried eggs for sandwiches that I would prepare for snack at the park later. My children thought the sausages is for the pancake. They rolled the sausage and eggs into the pancake. . . eat it. Eventually, they began to like it. Kinda of sweet, salty favor.

The Finnish style pancake, Panukakku or something like that. It's eggy and it's BAKED. Last recipe that i remember seeing B.T.W. came on the inside of a carton of eggs.
 
going back to their founding, two certain chains of pancake used to offer a wide variety of pancakes from around the world which were more than traditional pancakes with something added to the batter - chocolate, blueberries, strawberries, etc. regretfully, first the older chain and then the new upstart decided to shuck their pancake heritage for a wider variety of options and with that, the delightful choices were gone. examples of pancake concepts from both no longer offered:
crepes suzette (VERY sweet)
crepes
Swedish baked pancakes with ligonberries
German (what one of those certain chains call "Dutch" is only a smaller version of their now gone German)
 
b.t.w., Angela's Cafe in Jefferson City (Mo) offers Blackberry pancakes. good, but what i talked about above - regular pancake batter with something added. they also do chocolate, strawberry and blueberry depending on what's in season and what they feel like.
 
update Septebmer 27th - last weekend Angela's had a cranberry and white chocolate pancake. once again, the batter stays the same, these are just items added to it. there is a place that makes chocolate pancakes where the batter is actually chocolate but it is part of a chain so i won't say too much more, just wanted to point out that they go beyond adding stuff to the batter. oh yeah, Angela's still has the blackberry pancakes. and b.t.w. they sell Nehi soda, also,usually carrying just one flavor.
