120 (one hundred twenty) is a positive integer following 119 and preceding 121. A rare name for it is twelfty[1] (from twelve + -ty). Since "hundred" used to refer to either 100 or 120, the names long hundred and great hundred for 120 were also coined to disambiguate them.

Nirvana Supermind coined ternary-zero-quadragenol for this number, and is equal to Q<3,40> in quick array notation.[2]
