There's no official way in the protocol to name the sub-units of an asset, but you have several good options:

  • Include the sub-unit name in the asset name, e.g. gold-grams
  • Put the name of the sub-unit in the asset metadata, visible for anyone who checks
  • Show the sub-unit name in the application interface, assuming the users aren't accessing the node directly via the API
