Please see the attached example that uses "Section A" and "Section B" as sheet names. I've used the pagename propery of the Rectangle and the Tablix to set the sheet names. Also see this article for more information about page names:
You can't set the pagename of the subreport so you'll have to place the subreports in a Tablix or Rectangle.
I am not 100% certain, but I wonder if you can implement OPENROWSET in your SSRS export.  Something like this:

SELECT * FROM OPENROWSET('Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0', 'Excel 8.0;Database=C:\Directory\ExcelFileName.xls', 'SELECT * FROM [Sheet1$]')

I didn't test it but it looks like you can get multiple sheets by setting page breaks after a table. So this might work with subreports also. Search Google on:
"In SSRS, After Export into excel how to give Sheet name"
(including the quotes). This describes how to get multiple sheets, but also tells you the sheets are always named 'sheet 1', 'sheet 2'. But the article is rather old so maybe this was fixed.

You can find a completely different and much more complex technique when you search Google for:
"Changing the Sheet names in SQL Server RS Excel: QnD XSLT"
This technique uses an XSLT to create an XML that represents an Excel workbook. A lot of work but very powerful.

You might try this...
At the start and end of each sub-report  make a rectrangle and place a page break inside it.
This should force a regular page break at that point.
