In general, I prefer the -face suffix for the same reasons as Henrik.

The only place where I really don't like the -face suffix is in the
output from M-x list-faces-display.

BTW, that list doesn't use the same names as used by Customize -- which
replaces dashes by spaces and adds "Face" if missing.
