...but I thought I'd share with like-minded people first. There's been debate about what we should call this past decade (a la the 20's, 30's, 90's etc). Some have said the double oughts...meh.

I hereby decree the ten years following the birth of the millenium as...The Turns.
That is all.

Yes, as in "the turn of the millenium".

Person 1: When was that song released?

Person 2: I don't know, during the double oughts maybe?

Really?! That doesn't exactly role off the tongue now, does it?

"The Turns" sounds like a plague of raging botulism which hospitalised a large portion of Prague.
