"FC Bayern Munich" is a football club. That's what this forum is about. Aside from that, Bayern, refers to the state of Bavaria.

Just to let you 'real' in spanish means 'royal'. and 'Royal' in German it's 'königlich'.
I say this because 'real' isn't in the German dictionary!

According to history, the name 'Bayern' referring to the Boii tribe (Latin: Baio), in which is one of the early tribes that lived in where Bayern or Bavaria is situated today. As time passes, most of the words in the German linguistic with 'o' changed to 'a', for example 'home' becomes 'heim', thus 'boi' becomes 'bai'.

Then with many evolution and influences, the people of 'Bai' becomes 'Bayern'. The name 'Bavarian' has the Latin influence.'Ba' comes from the word 'Baio' and 'varia' comes from the word 'varii' that means 'the people who live in the area'. Thus, it becomes the Latin word 'Baiovarii' or 'Bavarian' as we know today.

The place where the Boii tribe lived was then named 'Boiheim' or today known as Bohemia.

Also, "Bayern" is derived from the Latin name "Baiuvarii", which in turn refers to the Celtic "Boii" tribe that inhabited present-day southern Germany and the neighboring Bohemia (Czech republic) during Antiquity. Both the names Bayern and Bohemia are derived from the name of this Celtic tribe.
