Someone born in the 1980s or 1990s. Could vote in 2016 and can usually remember before 9/11.
Matt was born in 1990 and probably won't be able to buy a house. He is a Millennial.

Millennial is an identity given to a broadly and vaguely defined group of people. There are two wings of "Millennial" that are often at odds with each other: Generation Y (people born between 1981-1991) and Generation Z (born between 1991-2001). People of Generation Y often have characteristics similar to Generation X, which is why Generation Z will confuse Generation Y with Generation X and then claim to be the generation that represents "MIllennial," when in fact, birth years for Millennial range from about 1981-2001, just as the birth-years for Baby Boomers ranged from 1946-1964.
Both Generation Y and Generation Z can be called "Millennials," with the primary difference between the two being technology. Generation Y grew-up on personal computers, cell phones, and video game systems, while Generation Z has grown up on tablets, smartphones, and apps. Yet, the common ground between both generations is that both have been transforming and altering communication and identity--not just in the United States but globally.

A member of Generation Y.

A generation being the average period it takes a human to be born, grown to adulthood and on average be expected to reproduce. A twenty year period.

This means the millennials that make up Generation Y were born between 1980 and 1999. The generation that saw the change of the millennium from the 20th to 21st century.
There is no good reason people have so much trouble identifying who is considered to be a millennial.

A misnomer used by Baby Boomers to express contempt for every whippersnapper and rapscallion younger than they are. It is synonymous with The Greatest Generation's use of the word "hippie."
Grandpa: These Millennials riding around in their Baby Bjorns, watching yeet memes on their iPhones, and telling Alexa to order more quinoa because they're too busy playing Fortnite to get off the davenport and go to the piggly wiggly! Get a job, Millennials!
Younger person: Grandpa, Millennials are like 35 now. They have 401(k)s and everything. Your cardiologist is a Millennial.
Grandpa: Stop back-sassing me, you Millennial!

A person who would say, without a hint of intentional irony, "I hate how all white men suffer from toxic masculinity and constantly inflict microaggressions due to their failure to check their privilege and respect the safe spaces of others. Oh, yeah... and I hate stereotypes."
Can you believe what that millennial just said? What's wrong with these kids today?
