  • Placeholder names; words that can refer to objects or people whose names are either irrelevant or unknown in the context in which it is being discussed. "Whatchamacallit" (for objects) and "Whatshisname" or "Whatshername" (for men and women, respectively) are defining examples. (Wikipedia)

    The list I made, Vaguesswork, also has some examples.
