Halfway through the aughts?

We're halfway through this decade and we still do not have a name for it. It used to be so easy--the 80s, the 90s, but what now? I haven't really heard many people use the term "aughts", which apparently is what was used one hundred years ago. We'd better choose a name now as it's too important of a decision to leave to VH-1.

I like the o-os, good idea. I fear that pop culture will opt for something awful, such as the zeros.

Hey - how about the zeds?
