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

Certainly on my list of things to do before I die, but with a young son who's birthday is on or around this event every year, it might not be until he's old enough to go with me or old enough to hate my guts before I go ;-)
