It would seem that it is tuple (or, rather, -ple) all the way beyond that:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuple#Origin_of_name

6
  • double
  • triple
  • quadruple
  • quintuple
  • sextuple
  • septuple
  • octuple

Here's a table from on Wiktionary:

Coef  Noun       Result 
1     single 
2     double     doublet 
3     triple     triplet 
4     quadruple  quadruplet 
5     quintuple  quintuplet 
6     sextuple   sextuplet 

I've never heard of anything beyond sextuple.
