Is there some kind of history behind the name 'Google' or was it just a random choice?
The name of Google is derived from the number googol, which is equal to the number 1 followed by 100 zeros (1 x 10^100). Backrub was the original name for the search engine until Sergey Brin and Larry Page rebranded the company as Google, Inc.
