No.

A parallelogram (check spelling) has two PAIRS of parallel sides which is not the same as exactly two parallel sides.

The correct answer is any polygon with with four or more sides of which only two are parallel. The only one of these with a specific name is a quadrilateral and the name is a trapezium.
