Larry Page and Sergey Brin created it, although it was originally called "BackRub."

Larry and Sergey decided that the BackRub search engine needs a new name. After some brainstorming, they went with Google-a play on the word "googol," a mathematical term for the number represented by the numeral 1 followed by 100 zeros. The use of the term reflects their mission to organize a seemingly infinite amount of information on the web.
