In Greece and Cyprus, they are called loukoumádes (λουκουμάδες) and lokmádes in Cypriot Greek. Loukoumas can be used for a singular piece of loukoumádes such as “φέρε μου ενα λουκουμά” which translates to “Bring me a loukouma”. They are commonly spiced with cinnamon in a honey syrup and can be sprinkled lightly with powdered sugar.
