in 1999, the upcoming millennium was a huge deal. It's hard to believe that kids
born at the turn of the millennium are almost out of grade school now! Anyway,
here are some names we came up with back then for you to use (supposing the Y2K
bug didn't crash everyone's computers that is!)
Do you want everyone to know
that your child was born in 2000? Do you want to commemmorate the new millennium
in a name?
I probably am not the first
party pooper you met to inform you that the new millennium doesn't technically
start until 2001, but that's OK. here are some ideas for you...
Millennia, Millennio, Millennium
This is an obvious choice...you
could always use the nicknames Lenny and Milly!
Millie, Milla, Mila, Milena,
Lenny, Milo, Liam, Nia
If you don't want to actually use the word Millennium, here are a few shorter

Neil, Nell, Ellin, Mimi, Eleni,
Millie, Emmi, Emili, Emil, Mel, Melini, Elli...Here's a way of commemmorating

variations on MM
2000 in roman numerals is MM. Commemmorate this with either a name with the initials
MM (Max Michael, Marissa Megan etc.) or perhaps with a name that contains 2 Ms
(Sammy, Miriam, Cammryn etc.)
2000 is also known as 2k or Y2k...how about a name with 2 Ks? Nikki, Kerrick,
or Katinka, anyone? Or you could use the initials KK (note: this is a very bad
idea if your last name also begins with K!). Kamryn Kelly, Kathryn Karina, Kody
Kaleb--K names are really trendy right now, you'll have a zillion to choose from
if you're so inclined! you could also go for the Y2k thing: Yanna Nikkole, Yaron
Kasey Kodiak etc.
The Pope declared 2000 to be a Jubilee year. However, even if you're not Catholic,
this would be a nice name to honor the celebration at the beginning of a new
