BCE = Before Common Era.
CE = Common Era.

These two abbreviations have been used as replacements for B.C. and A.D.
Something I find funny is that while these abbreviations have been chosen as non religious alternatives, one could use the word BCE to mean, Before Christian Era, and CE to mean Christian Era.
