The first 6 are Greek connotations, the rest for the forseeable future are named for the Latin Alphabet starting from Z.

Kilo (1024) - Greek
Mega (1024^2) - Greek
Giga (1024^3) - Greek
Tera (1024^4) - Greek
Peta (1024^5) - Greek
Exa (1024^6) - French rename of the Greek "Hexa"
Zetta (1024^7) - Latin "Z"
Yotta (1024^8) - Latin "Y"
... extrapolate from there :)

The biggest I guess would be an Alphabyte??? (1024^32).

Yeah,
at least it seems chaotic way to me.
Whith decimal classes up to vigintillion I understand system and history is known to me,
with tens in pow of 2 - I can not see the system just who and how choosed the names as in some system of names.
