sorry for the bad pics, they're from my phone

the connectors have a square tip that inserts into a plug or harness, and the other end get crimped onto a wire

I don't think it's molex,
molex pins are round male/female (like the ones in a PC)

these are square female and the male side are literally pins

Ok
I found a pic of one online after scanning through 200 something google links.
yeah it's driving me nuts that I can't find out what it is (it's my OCD - Obsessive-Compulsive disorder)

problem is the pic is from an overseas wholesaler and they list it as a
"Motorbike Ecu Terminals"

unfortunatley pic does not show the tip head on

I guess "ECU" terminal is a pretty broad name...... :(

Weather pack is like that but round. I forget what that one is called, but if you find weatherpack you close.

There are several manufacturers that make pins like that.  I would guess that Molex would have a pin like that - they make 1000s of different pins.  Amp/Tyco would be another good place to look.  I would guess both companies would offer something compatible.
