Origins Available: French
From the historical and enchanting region of Spain
emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Real family. The Real surname is derived from the Latin "regis, " meaning "royal." The Spanish word "rey" means "king," while "reina" means "queen." Bearing this name does not necessarily imply royal ancestry however; as, when surnames first began to be used in Medieval Spain
, nicknames were often taken on as surnames.
The surname Real was first found in Castile
, an important Christian kingdom of medieval Spain.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Reyes, Rey, de Reyes, de los Reyes, del Rey, Reina, de la Reina, de Reina, Reinoso, de Reinoso, Reynoso, de Reynoso, Reinosa, de Reinosa, Reynosa, de Reynosa, Real, de Real and many more.
