Dunno who this "Imperial Navy guy" is, because AT-AT's are army, and there were never naval personnel onboard an AT-AT. "Death Star Trooper" is just a nickname made up for the Imperial Navy Trooper before they got their official title. Just like how "Death Star Gunner" is also a nickname for the "Imperial Gunner" since they're most notable for their apperances on the Death Stars, like the Death Star Troopers too.
