Yep, "Sharklets" are an Airbus-only term for their winglets, the wing extensions to grab some air vortex energy, increasing fuel efficiency and effective aspect ratio.
Jetcan has been used by mechanics to mean the structural aero engine nacelles (shrouds), like a 'can' surrounding the engine blades.

Fun fact for the day: Winglets on the bottom edge of the wing are called scimitars. https://gizmodo.com/how-these-simple-scimitar-winglets-make-the-737-a-whole-837341873
