From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The aughts is a way of referring to the decade 2000 to 2009 in American English.[1][2][3] The equivalent term used in British English is the noughties.[4][5] These arise from the words aught and nought respectively, both meaning zero.

In the English-speaking world, a name for the decade was never universally agreed on as it was for decades such as the eighties, the nineties, etc.[6][7][8][9][10] Orthographically, the decade can be written as the "2000s" or the "'00s", leading people to refer to it as the "two-thousands", "ohs", "oh ohs", or "double ohs". Others referred to it as the "zeros".

The noughties became a common name for the decade in the UK[11][12][13][14][15] and in New Zealand and Australia.[16][17]

Although use of the word aught referring to zero is not widespread in the US, aughts rose to currency to refer to the decade in the US.[18][19][20]
