The part numbers for Reichelt are PFL 10 and PFL 16. I tried to post a link, but it didn't work.

But like Gerald said, check out ebay, amazon, etc. I got mine at Amazon in sets of 10 for cheaper.

Yes there are some sellers that sell a whole kit with both connectors and a bit of ribbon cable for great pricing. Or just the connectors. It is good to have spares. I always make a cable backwards or decide to move or add something. Also sometimes you just make a bad one that does not work right. Great to have a spare and not have to pay shipping again for just 1 more. Raechelt has pretty good pricing but ebay, amazon often beats them by a lot on these parts and the other pin header kits. The gold plated ones should never have corrosion issues.

More generally these are called IDC or IPC connectors : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Insulation-displacement_connector .Depending on the "Pitch" , aka pin spacing , you will have different connectors (male/socket/Pinheader +female IDC on wire) . Traditional pin headers used in previous MBHP design have a pitch of 2.54mm/1mm imperial, wich is also the pitch of traditional DIP (through-hole) components. Most of MBHP pinheaders connectors are 2x05 so you can run a search with something like "2x05 IPC connector 2.54" or "2x05 ipc socket 2.54"
Some common brands for connectors are Harwin,Samtec,Molex and Amphenol (at least i have some good experience with their products) But a search on Aliexpress/Ebay/Tayda might give you cheaper results
