So where did the name Google come from?

Q: So where did the name Google come from?

A: While at Stanford, Larry Page and Sergey Brin explained the origin of the name Google in their famous paper, "The Anatomy of a Large-Scale Hypertextual Web Search Engine".

"We chose our system name, Google, because it is a common spelling of googol, or 10100 and fits well with our goal of building very large-scale search engines."
