Generation Y

Generation of people who came of age in the beginning of the 3rd Millenium, with birth years roughly from the early-1980s to the mid-1990s or early-2000s.
(Redirected from Millennials)

Generation Y is made up of people born after Generation X. It is also before Generation Z also considered Millenials. Millenial stands for people reaching early adult hood in the early 21st century. There are no exact dates for when Generation Y started and ended. But the time is roughly for births between the early 1980s to the early 2000s. People in this generation are sometimes called Echo Boomers because of the high birth rate during this period. The high birth rate almost matches that of the Baby Boom period after World War II.

Many information sources mention the Generation Y as people born between 1983 and 2000.[1][2][3][4][5]

Some of the famous celebrities who are from Generation Y are Kylie Jenner, Chloe Grace Moretz, Jaden Smith, Shawn Mendes, Joey King, Ariel Winter, Harry Styles, Kendall Jenner, Hallie Kate Eisenberg, Nikki Reed, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Kate Bosworth, Lorde, Justin Bieber, Mandy Moore, Miley Cyrus, Mara Wilson, Colbie Caillat, and Avril Lavigne.
