One thing members of the Baby Boomers generation and Generation X love to do more than complain about the young people is to get our generations confused. While every generation has no clear start and end dates, Millennial grew up in the new millennium, all of us were born in the 20th century. We are Generation Y because we came after X. Every kid in high school today, is a member of Generation Z, many of them are getting to vote for the first time soon. It's also hard to say if the Generation Z name will actually stick but some alternatives have been the iGeneration or the Homeland Generation.
