The Standard uses "frontal bones" as well and "top of the skull". Parietal bones not used but "top of the skull" basically the definition of it. Occiput used as well, meaning "back of the head". The terms I referenced are not only in the veterinary medical journals but are actually used in the Standard.
quotes from the Standard
"Stop -- The temples or frontal bones should be very well defined, broad, square and high, causing a hollow or groove between the eyes. This indentation, or stop, should be both broad and deep and extend up the middle of the forehead, dividing the head vertically, being traceable to the top of the skull."
"Viewed at the side, the head should appear very high, and very short from the point of the nose to occiput."
"frontal bone - Flat skull bone forming the forehead and top of the eye sockets, and articulating especially with the parietal."
"parietal bone - Flat bone of the upper side of the skull articulating with the frontal and occipital bones."
"occipital bone - Flat bone of the lower back part of the skull articulating with the parietal bone and the atlas."
