assoc would make sense, as it's for an associative array data type, though it
might be a bit confusing as it's also the name of a function. 

>From the definition,

| A map (aka associative array, dictionary, symbol table) is an abstract
data type composed of a collection of (key, value) pairs, such that each
possible key appears at most once in the collection. 

another possibility would be kv.el, for key-value - e.g. you sometimes hear
them referred to as key-value stores. Then kv-map, kv-keys, kv-values, etc.
Or keyvalue.el, then keyvalue-map, keyvalue-keys, etc.
