GMMXIE means 2011, in Google Terms. It is derrived from the Roman Numerals M (1000), X (10) I (1). G does not have any meaning in Roman numerals. So, GMMXIE is Google’s way of saying “Happy New Year” for 2011! Additional Roman Numerals: Symbol Value I 1 (one) (unus) V 5 (five) (quinque) X 10 (ten) (decem) L 50 (fifty) (quinquaginta) C 100 (one hundred) (centum) D 500 (five hundred) (quingenti) M 1,000 (one thousand) (mille) (The odd thing is that I read this GMMXLE instead, as the I looks like an L)
