Wikipedia can answer it.. :D


The name "Google" originated from a misspelling of the word "googol",[13][14] which refers to 10100, the number represented by a 1 followed by one hundred zeros. Having found its way increasingly into everyday language, the verb "google" was added to the Merriam Webster Collegiate Dictionary and the Oxford English Dictionary in 2006, meaning "to use the Google search engine to obtain information on the Internet."[15][16]

Haha. I agree. You should have asked Google why it's named Google by going to google.com.

Whoever thought that a misspelling word that doesn't really make sense will become one of the most recognizable words today? Whoever thought that "search it online" is now "Google it"?

Asking this question itself tells your way of thinking. Its really a question or thought that not many people get. Can any one could explain more clearly why did they name as google

Google is a variation of "googol," the mathematical term for a 1 followed by 100 zeros.
As Google itself notes, there isn't a googol of anything in the universe.

The company Google was founded in 1995 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin
who met as computer science graduates from Stanford University.
