Why doesn't any language have the number system go like this?

1,000 = a million (English: thousand) 1,000,000 = a billion (English: million) 1,000,000,000 = a trillion (English: billion) 1,000,000,000,000 = a quadrillion (English: trillion)

This way the names are based on the number of groups of three zeros.

The standard system is so. But based on the number of groups of six zeros.
