I've always referred to "margin lights" as "flankers"  ..... they are a vertical row of glass to let addition light in....can flank window and doors... often found on the second two story front wall of a home that would normally have palladian window.... to get the same effect but for less money, builders often install a double hung window with two flankes and a half round or elliptical window or solid piece on top....

more than anyone needed to know, I'm sure!!

Side light the side of the door so people can look in when you're trying not to answer the door.

They are used in doors and I remember them near doorways in older school buildings to be able t see what was going on.
