I dont think he called it Fake because of Real (English word).
They get called Fake Salt Lake because Real (Spanish word) is give by Spanish King and Fake Salt Lake decided they would name themselves that, hence the name Fake.

For a minor league sports team, it's fine.

well technically there are no minor leagues in soccer. Not in the American sense anyway.

The Pittsburgh Riverhounds compete for a trophy against MLS teams. That doesn't happen anywhere else in American sports.

When the Riverhounds were founded in 1999 they held a press conference and announced that
the new team would be named the Pittsburgh River Dogs.

And they were immediately sued by a minor league baseball team with that same name.

Hence "Riverhounds".
