My Hotdish75 is not perfectly round, it measures about 730mm Horizontal x 800mm Vertical. I understand that it’s Concave and Parabolic, but, is there a name for that specific oval shape (more “view” Vertically, than Horizontally), like, is it Toroidal?

Offset Parabolic....
If you look at the dish from the point of the satellite, it will appear round. The offset helps the dish to be more vertical than a standard parabolic dish which in turn helps to reduce the possiblity of snow, leaves etc, collecting on the dish.

Though I liked Larry1’s term the best, It could be UPSliptical or FedExical, though I didn’t see any damage to the carton. :) JJ/BBL
