If this isn’t enough for you, go to http://isthe.com/chongo/tech/math/number/tenpower.html and find out what the 10000 power of ten is called.

Stig JohanBut that’s silly! It should be done in powers of a million.

(million)Â¹ = million = 10â¶

(million)Â² = billion = 10Â¹Â²

(million)Â³ = trillion = 10Â¹â¸

(million)â´ = quadrillion = 10Â²â´

Then replace -on with -ard for the numbers inbetween.

johnAnd that even with the suboptimal american number names. in german you have -illion and then -illarde for each Name:

– Million

– Milliarde

– Billion

– Billarde

– …
