It's a mbtc, we all know that.

.. and mbtc is soooo catchy. I use it all the time.

So call it a Millie for now. Catchier nicknames will arise naturally in time.

I'll wait for those catchier nicknames.

Interestingly, I've noticed that I never speak about bitcoin amounts in other than either full value or satoshi amounts, and when writing about a thousandth of a bitcoin I just write "0.001 btc".

Maybe the "mbtc" range is not needed.

In remembrance of MtGox I would call it 'Gox'  Wink

It was the first exchange that brought us to $1000 and 'Gox' sounds a bit like 'Bucks'  Smiley

Why can't we just use millibit and microbits?  Why do people try to give a name for every tenth.  Can't you just say 10 millibits or 100 millibits.  It's not necessary to have a new name every factor of 10.  Also I'm sure some people say this is confusing with the computer units for storage, but I'm pretty sure you can use a little context here.  There are many words with double meanings, doesn't mean we have to create a new word for every single meaning, right?

A lot of PTC / earn sites uses mbtc to describe 0.001 bitcoins.
Basically I pronounce it a millie-bitcoin, which is per definition what it is, a thousandth of a bitcoin.

Furthermore it already has been decided by network effects, and bumping this thread once every year will not change that. It wouldn't need bumping if it was ever going to get anywhere.

This is true.
It just got necro'd because someone wanted to build their post count,
then someone else complained about the term not being catchy enough.
The thread itself is stupid, it's time to let it die. Smiley

Just call it Gox. I think cca. 0.001 BTC will be the maximum what you will get back from every deposited BTCs.

Millies, as a friendly form of millibitcoins.

I like it because it goes with Mikes, a friendly form of microbitcoins, and someone is sure to do a nice logo of Millie and Mike.

"mil", plural "mils", is still the simplest.

I always seem to call it a mibit , or mib.  Like, sometimes when donating or tipping some people I'll say "That was worth a few mibs"... hahaha.  It kinda has that sort of "buck" feel in terms of wordflow. 

Anyway, that's my 2 BTCcents

How about just a Bit?

EDIT: to also propose the suggestion Bbit (pronounce "bee bit") and to second the suggestion of bitbit.

And just a random suggestion, perhaps the new unit name should belong to the 0.0001 denomination (cent of a cent).  We'll go through fewer names that way, less confusion.  The most useful significant digits will all remain near the decimal point (four to the left, four to the right of it), it could be the only new name we ever need.

I am not sure that SI patterns or prefixes are the way to go.  I occasionally use SI in regular speech just to be geeky (example, I like to say 5 "kilodollars" instead of 5 "grand"), and people look at me like I'm nuts and often don't even know what I mean, even though it should be obvious.  No one seems to expect to see money measured like kilograms or millimeters.

Beyond the currently accepted "satoshi", I don't feel fond of honorary names ("gav" etc.), these seem like they could be a turnoff.

I propose billi and bicro for 0.001 and 0.000001 BTC respectively.
Rolls off the tongue and it's immediately obvious what each is.
