In European football, what does REAL mean in front of all those teams names? Does it signify something?

"Real" is only used in Spanish football. It means 'Royal' and is an honourific granted by the King. Real Madrid, for instance, was just Madrid until about 1915.

Edit: My mistake, it was 1920

Please, there are plenty of Christians that are not the rabidly opressive stereotypical caricatures that are so often trundled out in these debates. In fact, I'd go so far as to say they are the *gasp* majority.
