Names for Cusps?
#1
This document has got me thinking. It gives the following names for cusps:

Millennial -> Charter Cusp -> Homelander
X -> Justice Cusp -> Millennial
Boomer -> Jones Cusp -> X
Silent -> War Baby Cusp -> Boomer
G.I. -> Greatest Cusp -> Silent
Lost -> Interbellum Cusp -> G.I.
Missionary -> Roosevelt Cusp -> Lost
Progressive -> Civil War Baby -> Missionary
Gilded -> Bloody Shirt Cusp -> Progressive
Robber Baron Cusp
Transcendental Cusp...
New Frontier Cusp (these three are inconsistent)
Republican -> Federal Cusp -> Compromise
Liberty -> Founder Cusp -> Republican

Cusps are almost as important as generations as a whole, and it'd be cool if they had official names. Let's come up with some!

The name "Charter Cusp" sounds a bit dated IMO. We should use "Zoomer Cusp" instead, because
a) It references the media calling us "Gen Z" at some point
b) It references generation memes where we're called "Zoomers" because we're the antithesis to Boomers
c) It references "Zoom", which many of us are using for online classes during the COVID-19 pandemic
d) I guess it references the "Zoomer" mechanical pet toys? They were advertised all the time on TV back in the early to mid-2010s.

I don't know where "Justice Cusp" comes from. If anyone does know, let me know.

I think we can all agree that "Jones Cusp" is a perfect name.

I'm curious about where "Justice" and "Charter" as names are coming from.

(I guess "Xennials" is kinda empty in meaning)

Justice Cusp seems rather too complimentary and self-congratulatory for Xennials.

I don't know about that. It implies, and actually is, a non-generation that exists because the pace of change created a niche that needed filling.  My son and his wife are in this cusp. He presents very X, but has some Millie sensibilities.. She's more Millie than X on the outside, but has real slacker tendencies when she feels like it. They're both achievers, family oriented and loyal to a tee.

Xennials are the too-early Millies.  9/11 happened.  Civics were called, but none showed up.  The Xennials were the closest thing on hand.
Intelligence is not knowledge and knowledge is not wisdom, but they all play well together.

I am an Xennial and I love justice Tongue 

Midriff cusp may be a good name, because of the fashion when we were teens/young adults.

I think it's saying they are aligned with SJW movements such as BLM & #metoo. 

The BLM founders according to Wikipedia, were born 1981-1983.

"Me too" was founded by a 1973 cohort but when it finally fluorished as a movement it benefitted many Xennial women.

I always associated SJWs with core millennial social media drones. Social media, social justice, it's almost a buzzword for them.
