The Number of the Beast

Why was (is) 666 the number of the beast? Revelation says that the number of the beast is six hundred threescore and six; I know the verse, but I'm curious as to why that's the number and not, say, 555, 637, or 8.

I tried googling some, but all I could find was a bunch of wacky conspiracy sites and 'number of the beast decoders.' I did learn that Bill Clinton has the number of the beast, though.
