## History of the Infinity Symbol

Given how pervasive the infinity symbol is, you might guess that it’s had a long history. You’d be right. For centuries, the use of a sideways infinity 8 has been used in logos and religious symbols.
In 1655, the infinity symbol was imbued with its mathematical meaning for the very first time. John Wallis, in his De sectionibus conicis (Treatise on the Conic Sections), used it to mean mathematical infinity, or a limitless amount. How’d he come up with this symbol? It’s unclear, but some guess that it came from the Roman Numeral for 1,000, or CIƆ, or from the Greek letter ω (omega), the final letter of the alphabet.
The term “infinity” itself comes from the Latin word infinitas, which means “unboundedness.”

Beyond math, the infinity symbol has come to represent a large range of concepts related to its endless nature:
For this reason, the infinity logo has become a popular subject of infinity jewelry, tattoos, and t-shirts.
