Google-y. What’s in a name.

I realize I could easily google this but… my brain has latched onto the idea that google was named from googly eyes. Pretty sure I’m onto something here.
My imagination can be like a wild cat, skittish and jumpy at every little thing- ready to scamper off down some crazed path if movement is sensed. But names interest me. When naming my children it didn’t matter how much I LOVED the name, if the meaning sucked the name was tossed out. Some name meanings are absolutely ridiculous. I don’t remember what the name was, it was one I liked, but it meant something like “field surrounded by trees” or something stupid like that. Who comes up with these things?
Now google, if it was named for googly eyes, that’s freakin brilliant!
