What behind Google's name ??

In 1995, Larry Page and Sergey Brin met as students at Stanford University, where they began to collaborate on a search engine called BackRub.
Larry and Sergey decide that the BackRub search engine needs a new name. After some brainstorming, they name it Google .
Would you believe me, if I say that the name was the result of a small spelling mistake by one of the close associates of Larry Page? I know you wouldn’t. But you better do, as it is unbelievable, yet true! I In 1996, it so happened, that Larry Page and Sean Anderson, a graduate student working with him, were seated in their office brainstorming on the name of the search engine. They were thinking of naming it as something related to the voluminous data the search engine indexed. Then they came up wit a name ‘Googol’ which was coined by nine-year-old Milton Sirotta, nephew of the American mathematician Edward Kasner. (Googol is a mathematical term for the number represented by the numeral 1 followed by 100 zeros. 1 googol = 1.0 × 10100)Sean was quick to search the Internet domain name registry database to see if the newly suggested name was available.
Interestingly, Sean misspelled ‘googol’ as ‘google’ and found that it was available. Larry Page liked the name and soon got it registered in the registry database. And this very powerful search engine of the day got its name. The Google search engine was registered as ‘google.com’ in September 1997.
The use of the term reflects their mission to organize a seemingly infinite amount of information on the web.
