Silly Signed / Unsigned question

I know the difference between Signed and Unsigned but I was curious why they call them that? I did google for the answer but the response I find explain what the difference are and not what the terminology is so I thought I would ask real quick instead?

My guess is unsigned, being only positive numbers, means there is no minus SIGN in front of it but that is only guess.

Just wondering?
