Eli Bendersky added the comment:

Top/bottom is accepted and understood nomenclature when talking about stacks. Think about a stack of plates in the kitchen. You put a new plate on top, you take it out from top. That's it.

Now, lists are just one way to implement stacks, and printing them is also inconclusive in direction. Therefore I don't think we should mix the implementation/definition here and keep top/bottom.
