The standard SI prefix system only extends to yotta- = 1024. A number of extended prefixes have been proposed for the next power of 1000, 1027 (Octillion). A common choice is a prefix starting with the letter X, extrapolating from the previous two prefixes, which have initials Z and Y respectively.
