Agreed we need a good nickname as I plan on giving away a lot of "bits" to friends and family this year.

How are you going to do that? I was planning to do the same, but wasn't sure of the best way. I'd like to give them a QR code or something?

There is already a word for a thousandth unit of a currency:  a mill.  A mill is a thousandth of a dollar.
The word mill appears in the U.S. Constitution, along with the words dime and cent.
I mentioned in another post that at one time there were actual mill coins, issued by some states.  Apparently the feds didn't issue any mills.
The ones I handled as a child were made of red plastic.
I'm going with bitmill or just plain mill.

Why make up a new word when the mill (or mille or mil) is already used with many currencies?

Mill (currency)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The mill or mille (₥) (sometimes mil in the UK, when discussing property taxes in the United States, or previously in Cyprus and Malta) is a now-abstract unit of currency used sometimes in accounting. In the United States, it is a notional unit equivalent to 1⁄1000 of a United States dollar (a tenth of a cent). In the United Kingdom it was proposed during the decades of discussion on the decimalization of the pound as a 1⁄1000 division of the pound sterling. Several other currencies used the mill, such as the Maltese lira.
The term comes from the Latin "millesimum", meaning "thousandth part".

Tips much appreciated! 1PPJHDawPvjh6MEzsvXrMYLgpLmyAaNXUc

A 'lame' because that's how I feel describing bitcoin (or any whole unit of currency not rounded to the nearest integer, see $4.99 FUCK YOU IT'S $5 /pennjillette) out loud instead of just pointing at the amounts on a screen.

LOL
