The search engine Google gets its name from the number ‘googol’, which is a 1 with 100 zeros. This can be written as 1 x 10^100.

A googolplex is a 1 with a googol zeros. This can be written as 1 x 10^(10^100).

A googolplexian is a 1 with a googolplex zeros. This can be written as 1 x 10^(10^(10^100)). A googolplexian is the largest number with a name.

Its true that you could take a googolplexian and add 1 to it, and then one to that, and then one to that – the end is when you reach infinity (but by definition, infinity doesn;t have an end!)
