New Name For Millennium...The Oh-Ohs?

We had the 80's, we are in the 90' what do you call the next decade?

What had the eighties, we are in the nineties - so what do you call the next decade? That was the question posed by a London public relations agency. Trevor Morris of QBO commissioned a survey to find out what people want the next ten years to be called.

News reports say of the 1,000 people that were surveyed, one out of three chose "the Zeros". The next top choices were the 00s (the Oh-Ohs) and the Earlies. One out four people had no idea what to call the next decade. "We think the Zeroes captures a sense of starting afresh with a clean sheet", Morris told the London Evening Standard.

The survey had certain names to choose from but that didn't stop several creative types from coming up with their own terms. Other names suggested were the Naughties, the Beginning and the Peacefuls. Aside from the names, six out of 10 people thought the decade would end with a cure for cancer. Almost half of the respondents thought the AIDS crisis would be over and only ten percent thought war there would be a war in Europe of a stock market crash.
