In the US the dollar has names for smaller amounts (like a quarter, a dime, a nickle, a penny).  Bitcoin needs something like this.  I propose that it be loosely based on the metric system.  As follows:

0.1 Bitcoin = deci + coin = deco (pronounced deck-o)
0.01 Bitcoin = centi + coin = ceco (pronounced sek-o)
0.001 Bitcoin = milli + coin = mico (pronounced mik-o)

Hope this helps
Once a transaction has 6 confirmations, it is extremely unlikely that an attacker without at least 50% of the network's computation power would be able to reverse it.

I'm somehow really glad you went metric style instead of imperial.  BitFoot anyone?  And Binch just sounds a bit too much like...
