GOOGLE originated from GOOGOL

Never thought why the search engine named “Google” and from where it originated? To know this, we obviously tend to Google Search it.

But, today i came across a similar word in Mathematics, Googol.

In Mathematics, the word “Googol” is a cardinal number. It is represented as one followed by 100 Zeros or you can say 10 raised to the power of 100.

Now, it seems obvious why the founders named the search engine as Google. The name signifies that the search gives large quantities of information.
