There is some precedence in the entity names of using "upwards",
"downwards", "horizontal", and "vertical" for arrows and lines.  For
corners, there is upperleft, upperright, lowerleft, and lowerright.  Of
course, this doesn't mean that attribute values need to or should follow the
precedent of entity names.   However, I'll throw these out as a possible
alternative:

upwardsstrike
downwardsstrike
horizontalstrike
verticalstrike
upperleft
upperright
lowerleft
lowerright

Another precedent:  currently, all attribute names use only lower case
letters.
