Billion and Million are used to represent numbers.
Billion originated from French word bi- (“two”) + -illion; i.e. a million million. It was first coined by Jehan Adam in 1475 as by-million and then rendered as byllion by Nicolas Chuquet in 1484.
Million originated from the Italian milione (million), from mille (thousand) and from the Latin mille + the augmentative suffix -one.
