Well, I doubt I can give you exactly the answer you're looking for but.... It is thought to come from the latin word "Qvaestio" which means question. This was abriviated Qo. Turn that sideways... and you sort of get a ? with a bit of morphing, of course. This is apposed to "!" which was the "note of aspiration.
