What's this connector called?

Silly question really, but wiki isn't helpful in the matter.

The ones on the right hand side with the blue wires.  Basically, my new motorbike (beautiful bike!) I've fitted an alarm to, the alarm has to fit to the indicators (which I'm replacing with LED ones) and the best way to do that is to solder it on, but my soldering skills don't exist so I figure the best way (for me) would be to strip the connector off the LED wire, twist the alarm wire to the LED wire and then crimp on the connector which will complete the circuit.  But, I don't know the proper name of the connector in question, nor even if it's male or female that I require!  So, does it even have a proper name?  Wait, male or female doesn't matter, I'll need both to connect to the existing wire, err, though would be nice to know which is which I suppose, be pretty rude of me to call a female connector "sir"  Embarrassed

I think the ones you want are commonly called 'Bullet' connectors.
Call me 'w23'

Ah ha, them look very well engineered, but the bullet did the trick!
