    Vagaries of 'cut' aside you can limit yourself here to just shell:

    set_name_period () {
    NAME=$1 ; PERIOD=$2
    }
    for i in "MSEC 1000" "USEC 1000000"
    do
    set_name_period $i
    ....
    done

    or you may skip a shell function and do 'set $i' within a loop plus
    assignments of $1 and $2 to NAME and PERIOD but that overwrites original
    positional parameters (which may be already not important).
