OK comes from Greek "Olla Kalla" which means "all good".

Namely oll korrect. So how does that make any sense at all? Im glad you asked, because otherwise this article would have been way to short to publish.
The time was 1839. In Boston and New York, slang abbreviations were all the rage with the abbreviations often representing deliberately misspelled slang phrases like KY for know yuse; OW for oll wright (the predecessor of oll korrect); KG for know go; NS for nuff said; and many many others.
OK is one of the few of these abbreviations to survive. It managed to do so largely because of an 1840 New York campaign slogan by boosters of Martin Van Buren for re-election. Van Burens nickname was Old Kinderhook; so this group made their name the O.K. Club, thus having the double meaning of oll korrect and Old Kinderhook. As you might expect, this also gave rise to Van Burens opponents quipping that Van Burens supporters were all illiterate.
