I just did some research for them: "go" gets about 431,000,000 ghits.
For comparison, pick a programming languaged named with something not a
common word: "gcc" gets about 18,800,000 ghits, and it has been out in
public for more than a couple of days.
Still, they could have chosen worse: much of my work is on a system
called (among many other names) "i", and that gets about 8,030,000,000
