xennial

(redirected from an xennial)

xennial

An individual of the generation whose members were born between roughly 1977 and 1983. The name refers to the perception that such people were born between members of Generation X (people born in the 1960s and '70s) and millennials (people born in the 1980s and '90s). The proper pronunciation of the term is debated. Like a true xennial, the epitome of my childhood was playing The Oregon Trail on a floppy disk.
