    Kilometre,Hectometre,Decametre,Decimetre and Meter I think that's how it goes this saying that you have also has other ones the same but a little different words.

    King Hector's Daffy Mother Drinks Chocolate Milk

    The order of prefixes in the metric system, for every power of ten from 3 to -3, is Kilometer, Hectometer, Decameter, Meter, Decimeter, Centimeter, Millimeter:

    I hardly ever hear anyone use hectometer or decameter though and more important would be micrometer and nanometer in this day and age.
