Numbers are indeed infinite, but the greatest number spoken of relatively often is a googol (this is also where Google founders got the name for their company). You can read about it here: http://www.ask.com/wiki/Googol

It is a googol.....1 with 100 zeros after it. Considered the largest number as there is nothing even close to date that has that many "things" etc. needing to be counted. Some day in the future, inflation may change that. Not in our lifetime....I hope....!!!
