This is indivisible precision, right? How about bitatom? or qubitcoin (quantized bitcoin)?

There is no such thing as an indivisible number.

Currently Bitcoins are divisible up to 8 decimal places. This is pure convention though and can be changed.

True, afaik SI doesn't have special name for 1e-8. So I think Satoshi is a good name for this unit. 1 satoshi = 10 nBtc.
