Back when American Style Football was first being regulated, the length of the ball was required to be one foot. Hence, football.

Yeah true. The balls in most American sports aren't shaped like their names suggest. Basketballs don't look like baskets, baseballs..like bases.

Around the world it's known as Futbol, but in America (and I believe Canada) it is known as Soccer.

American Football got it's name like Faustenberger said, because the balls were a foot long. That's why it is often confused with Futbol, since they''re very similar. But IIRC calling Soccer/Futbol "Football" is wrong.
