I never liked having to name a fixture "area" or "path" light since pretty much all so-called "path" lights can be well used in areas other than paths. We call ours "Area/Path" lights, which is (admittedly) vague.
The IES Lighting Handbook has only two designations that apply, "pathway" and "landscape". For interior lighting, they have dozens of designations. The IES doesn't seem to care too much about landscape lighting, so they're not to helpful with our naming problems.
