  1. There is no full form for Google (it is not an acronym), Google is the result of misspelling happened as the company was to be named Googol. A googol is the large number 10to the power of 100.

    The word “yahoo” is a backronym for “Yet Another Hierarchically Organized Oracle” or “Yet Another Hierarchical Officious Oracle”. The term “hierarchical” described how the Yahoo database was arranged in layers of subcategories. The term “oracle” was intended to mean “source of truth and wisdom”, and the term “officious”, rather than being related to the word’s normal meaning, described the many office workers who would use the Yahoo database while surfing from work. However, the founders of Yahoo, Filo and Yang insist they mainly selected the name because they liked the slang definition of a “yahoo” (used by college students in David Filo’s native Louisiana in the late 1980s and early 1990s to refer to an unsophisticated, rural Southerner): “rude, unsophisticated, uncouth.” Filo’s college girlfriend often referred to Filo as a “yahoo.” This meaning derives from the Yahoo race of fictional beings from Gulliver’s Travels.
