Question Did we decide what we are calling the first ten years of this century?

Cause I still haven't heard an acceptable term.

The 2000's would seem to imply the entire century. ie the 1900's

Ive heard some old-timers refer to years between 1901-1909 as aught-2 or aught-7, etc. So are we calling them the Aughts?

Or are we just calling them the Singles?


We cant leave this decade till we have a suitable name

'Oh'

Like "Sandra", but with less "want to hit in the face with a meat cleaver."

Well, what did they call them in 1900? Find that answer and you'll have yours.

I've just taken up saying 20 naught 9, or 2 double naught 9.

So it could be the naughty years.
