The new year is a few days away! Going from 2010 to 2011 will be cool, though probably not as cool as it was going from 1999 to 2000 (Y2K!) or from 2000 to 2001 (the official start of the new millennium).
Speaking of the millennium, did you know that dozens of baby girls were given the names Millennium and Millennia (and variants) about a decade ago? The names started popping up in the mid-90s and were gone by the early 2000s.
So why did Millenia and Millennia appear early? A pair of products: a car and a fragrance. The Mazda Millenia was a sedan launched (in North America) around 1995, and Millennia was a perfume launched by Avon in 1996.
