In informal settings, for example, in normal conversation, it is appropriate to simply refer to a subdeacon by his first name.
Sacramentally, all subdeacons are equal; if there are multiple subdeacons, they are ranked and serve by seniority according to the date of their ordination. Additionally, subdeacons are it is not able appropriate to give blessingskiss a subdeacons hand - this is done for bishops and priests (and in some traditions, deacons).
