Omega is the last letter or the twenty-fourth letter of the Greek Alphabets. It is written as Ω ω. The word omega is formed of two parts: the alphabet 'O' and mega. Meaga means 'great'. Thus, omega means 'Great O'. In classical Greek the letter omega was known as ō (ὦ). The name omega originates in the Byzantine Period or Medieval Greek Period. The symbol is derived from the sign of omicron (the fifteenth letter of the Greek Alphabets). The sign of Omicron is doubled and opened at the top to form the symbol of omega.

The Ancient Greek letter omega (Ω) was pronounced as a long 'O'. But, the Modern Greek letter omega (Ω) is pronounced as a short 'O'. The sound is similar to the 'o' in British English word 'pot'. A fatty acid is also named omega. It is important against heart disease. Omega could also mean 'One chip Multimedia EnGine Architecture'. It is one of the products of CMG.

Omega is the twenty-fourth and the final letter of the Greek alphabet. It holds a value of eight hundred as per the Greek numeric system. The word literally refers to the meaning 'great O' as compared to Omicron, which refers to the meaning of 'little O'. The name is Byzantine, and in Ancient Greece it was expressed as a symbol.

In phonetic terms, the omega in Ancient Greek as a long 'o', resembling the vowel in the English word 'close'. In Modern Greek however, omega is a short 'o' resembling the vowel in the English word 'pot'.

The word Omega is usually used to indicate the last or the eventual boundary or finish of a group, as compared to Alpha, the first letter of the Greek alphabet. It is famously mentioned in the Bible, when Christ asserts himself to be the Alpha and Omega, the start and the finish.
