Feh! Too common, everyone has a few many don't use them.

First it should be dimensionless, those are weird enough. If not then
like DB (DeciBell) which will give it a log or exponential character though
I'd be interested in seeing other oddly shaped numbers.

A possible name? Calcula with a range of values from microcalcula
(watch calc or smaller) to Kilo or maybe megacalcula(Sage! or other beast).
