In keeping with naming decades (cf. 1990s "the Nineties", 1980s "the Eighties", etc.), the decade of the 2000s lacks an accepted name, so far; it is named "the Noughties" by some (referring to the nought, or zero, as the decade indicator, but the word-play on "naughty" is intentional). In keeping with the practice of the nineteenth century, it could also be called "the Aughts" or "Oughts;" it could also be referred to using the term 'nil' as the "nillies".
