"DeviceBoundCredential" would be acceptable to me. I prefer "PublicKeyCredential" because it gives developers more hint about how they need to use the credential, and I don't think @AngeloKai has given an argument against it (["implies the credential has a public/private key pair"](https://github.com/w3c/webauthn/pull/432#issuecomment-298748100) is correct), but "DeviceBound" does distinguish this from other kinds of credentials on the platform.
