southereal,  southreal,  souzreal  

Anglo-Norman attestations of the word all use a suz1 prefix (or a variant spelling of it), whereas some English equivalents, as well as the underlying etymology/semantics, would favour the use of a sur2 prefix: the branch above the real (i.e. the second branch of the antlers).
