A whole decade is passing by and a new one is starting. The one that is passing by was marred by life changing events around the globe. Conflict, strife, financial crises. This decade would be certainly remembered. But what to call it is the question.
Two options I have heard being bandied about are:
the Noughties – referring to the 0s
the Oh-Ohs – again referring to the os
While the former would suggest something frivolous, I think the latter would be more apt, due to its resemblance to something avoidable.
