So - what do we call the decade?

In the 1970s it was easy. We just called the decade the 70's.
The same principle worked pretty well for the 80's and 90's too.
But when the new millennium dawned we were all presented with a big problem - what to call the decade?

I always called that decade the oh-ohs, although the press seemed to go for the expression "the noughties" which I always thought was awful!  I mean - The Noughties - it just sounds too much like "the naughties" - horrible!    Anyway, that isn't my problem - 


I started off by calling it the Tens - but that just sounds terrible! A friend on another website suggested that we call it "the Teenage Years" but that doesn't work either. That would mean we were ignoring the years 2010, 2011 and 2012, and we can't do that!  So - does anyone have any ideas - 

What do we call this current decade?  This is important!
