Name the decade

As y'all know, previous decades have had the privilege of being called "the 70s", or "the 80s" or "the 90s." What about the decade we're in now? We're halfway through it yet no one knows what to call it. I've got no ideas, do y'all have any?

In the UK, we get a lot of people calling the decade the Noughties.
