  • Denarian: Someone age 10 to 19.
  • Vicenarian: Someone in his or her twenties.
  • Tricenarian: Someone in his or her thirties.
  • Quadragenarian: Someone in his or her forties.
  • Quinquagenarian: Someone in his or her fifties.
  • Sexagenarian: Someone in his or her sixties.
  • Septuagenarian: Someone in his or her seventies.
  • Octogenarian: Someone in his or her eighties.
  • Nonagenarian: Someone in his or her nineties.
  • Centenarian: Someone 100 or more.
  • Supercentenarian: Someone 110 years old or more (no upper limit).

This does not address 0 to 9, I offer wee-uns.


How about Unarian? Un from Latin 'unus'for one, suggesting first stage, single digit number(units as opposed to tens...). Chrissie12344


I offer the answer for the name of the first decade as Prenarian

    Hello, Ariya.What we're really looking for (on this or any other Stack Exchange site) is a supported answer: one that you can support with authoritative references (in this case an encyclopedia, dictionary, or some other such document).[Matt Gutting] This would be better if given as a 'comment'. – Edwin Ashworth Aug 20 '14 at 20:16
  • This word does not appear in the OED. I do not think this is a good option. – Matt E. Эллен Aug 20 '14 at 20:40
