    What is the name of the prefix for 1e500? I know it likely doesn't exist, yet here I am... asking anyways. Thank you to everyone who tries answering this question for me!

    It doesn't have an assigned name. The largest named prefix in the SI is for 1024. Note that except for centi, deci, deka and hecto, all other SI prefixes are positive and negative powers of 1000 (103) and 10500 fails to fit that model. Scientific notation would be preferred for numbers this large; no one would have enough use for such a prefix to be able to remember it when needed.
