What is the proper name for the decade we are in now?

It doesn't seem to be as clear-cut as nineties or noughties, where do you stand on the name of the decade debate?

Damn, I can remember when noughties was a fresh-sounding word laugh.gif

The Twenties will mean something else soon apart from jazz which the 1920s are associated with laugh.gif

Twenty-Tens. You're going to have to prefix with 'twenty' soon to avoid confusion with the decades from the previous century.

I’ve always said the tens even though it sounds stupid. The noughties also sounded stupid.

I just call it the 2010s (like Doctor Blind said we'll have to get used to saying 'twenty' at the start of decades soon). x

Twenty-Tens and Twenty-Twenties are alright sounding but I don't think it works as well beyond that. I wonder how often the decades from the 20th century will be referenced as we get further away from them, it's hard to tell with the 1910s because they were so dominated by war and didn't really get any nostalgia, and a 00s decade is always awkward for nicknames but the 1890s definitely used to be referred to as 'the Nineties' while there were still people alive who'd experienced them.

Once there's no one alive who's experienced the 1920s, it may be that we forget about referencing it commonly right in time for people to start getting nostalgic about the 2020s and necessitating a decade name.

It was known as "The Gay Nineties", funnily enough.

The Teenies and Tennies are HIDEOUS, let's dispel those instantly x

The 2010s in writing/a historical sense ofc. although it doesn't roll off the tongue well verbally so the Tens.
