Origins Available: French, Spanish


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.

Real Early Origins



The surname Real was first found in Castile, an important Christian kingdom of medieval Spain.
