Question regarding terminology

Let's say you've got a flush draw. Which one is better?

Situation A: You've got two clubs. There are two clubs on the flop.
Situation B: You've got one clubs. There are three clubs on the flop.

Situation A must be better, because it reduces the chance of someone else also having a flush draw. My question is, is there a specific NAME for this kind of flush draw? I mean, do strategy writers differ between the two situations, and if so, what kind of term should I Google for to find more about it?

I know that nut flush draw means that you have the ace, so that you draw to the best possible flush. But this is quite different.

Also, to distinguish these two, one can also do on three of a kind draws, straight draws, full house draws, etc... It is not only the flush.

Thank you for all help!

How so? In both spots, you can account for four clubs out of the thirteen that are in the deck, and you also know one card that isn't a club. (When you see a flop, you know 5 cards, 2 of your own, 3 on the board). There are still nine clubs out there (in the deck or in other people's hands) in both situations.

P.S. Depending on your holecards (e.g. whether you have the ace of the required suit), and villain's overall range (most players prefer suited hands), you are less likely to get action on the monotone flop. e.g. On a monotone K72, where you have the ace, villain will rarely have a flush draw, or a flopped flush. (In most players's ranges, the only flopped flushes on that mono board - if you have the ace - would be QJcc, JTcc, T9cc, 98cc, 65cc, and their flush draws will be with mid-strength pair+draws like KxQc or KxJc, or a pocket pair like TxTc that doesn't really like that board.)
