The search engine first started off as 'BackRub' (this was what Google was known as during its initial days in Stanford) before its creators Larry Page and Sergei Brin zeroed in on the name "Google" which is derived from the mathematical term for a seemingly infinite or large number Googol(1 followed by 10 zeroes). Today 'Google' is a verb that means Search for information about (someone or something) on the Internet using the search engine Google according to Oxford dictionary.
