Google's co-founders have a knack for goofy yet memorable company names. In 1996, before Google existed, Page and Brin thought up quirky names for a search engine and settled on 'Backrub.' They settled on this name for the precursor of Google because it was a program that analyzed the 'back links' of the web. Using this information, it could determine how important a website was. A year later, they hit on the name 'Google' and registered the domain name. The rest is history. Source: BusinessInsider.com
