Aughty Years 

As Village Voice’s Michael Mustro has pointed out that, “Yes, the aughts (aka the ‘00s) … are coming to a close in a few months, and every media outlet in the world is scrambling to drum up a clever way to sum them up.”

I have the only answers that are numerically correct and mnemonically pleasing: Aughties, Naughties, Naughts, Aughts or Naughty Aughties.
