Is there a name for all numbers greater than zero?

You need to be more specific. If you mean the integers greater than zero, these are called the natural numbers. If you mean real numbers greater than zero, then no, there is no special name for them.

My general impression is that the convention "0 is a natural number" is becoming standard.

You can also call them the "positive integers".
