The way the name Topeka came into existence was after the mayor of Topeka Kansas, Bill Bunten, decided to change the name of Topeka Kansas to Google Kansas through the end of March.

Google officials said that they wanted to honor what Bunten had done and so with much deliberation and counseling one with another Google officially decided to change its name to Topeka. Although there has been a name change the traditional red, green, blue and yellow colors will still be prominent with the new name change.

If you have read this far you may be asking yourself “I can’t believe Google would change their name” especially after they have had so much go into branding the name Google. Google is famous for its April Fools pranks so happy April Fools!
