If we agree that background-size essentially means "take this background image and make it fill this much of the background area"

Sounds like background-image-size to me. 

background-fill or background-image-fill would still make sense from a design perspective in my opinion. Definitely more so than background-size which makes me simply think I can literally size the background any way I want, which clearly isn't what we're expressing here.
