Thin French pancakes. These are usually made with wheat batter (buckwheat based batter produces galettes).

These belong to a relatively vague category of ancient Greek Tiganitai (meaning ‘frying pan’), which in English translates to pancakes. The French term, crêpe, derives from the Latin crispa, meaning tiganitai with “creases”. They may have originated in Brittany, France, but are made and consumed around the world.
