Best What is the best notation when considering 2 qubitsto write pairs of one-qubit ket states?

I am working on coming up with practice problems for a QC course. I have a problem that considers two qubits as so:

$|\psi_a> = \alpha_a |0> + \beta_a |1>$$$|\psi_a\rangle = \alpha_a |0\rangle + \beta_a |1\rangle$$

$|\psi_b> = \alpha_b |0> + \beta_b |1>$$$|\psi_b\rangle = \alpha_b |0\rangle + \beta_b |1\rangle$$

But I found the alphas and betas combined with a's and b's very confusing. I was just wondering if there was a standard notation for this type of thing or any notation others have found easier to understand.

Note: Sorry about the formatting couldn't figure out how to get the braket package to work.
