silly question but what are these called?

The metal plate disc things. Are they just really big nail heads or is there an official name for them? I found tiny nails like this on rockler but I cant find any large ones. Any clue where to look?

If they have nuts on the other side, they are carriage bolts. If there are no nuts or anything else sticking through on the other side, then they are NOT carriage bolts. Are they attaching the wood to the brick?
