So.What shall we call the new decade then ?

Of course this previous decade became know widely as the "Noughties",a term which came about mostly by evolution of public banter and the need for us to "label" everything.
I have already heard the term "Oneties" bandied around as a posible "label" for the next decade, but can't help but think that it sounds wrong, after all, we did not call the roaring twenties the "roaring twoties" did we...it doesn't sound right.
My suggestion then, if we must "label" the next decade, would be to call them the "Tenties".Why? well it just follows the natural flow Tenties,Twenties,Thirties,Fourties etc,etc.

What do you think ?
