The Answers
1. Rangers, and St Mirren,  Hibernian is named after Ireland, Raith is the name for a area around Kirkaldy, Clyde is the name of the river, Albion is a name for Britain, so Albion Rovers as well. Then again St Mirren, were kind of named after a church in Paisley, so maybe it is just one. 

2 Arsenal, 

3 Woolwich Arsenal, was a location they were named after, but that does not stand out in terms of looking at the modern generic Arsenal name. 

4 None are official names, Aberdeen of course play in Aberdeen, and all the other names, are added so that people in other countries can know where they come from, but nobody complains, which is good, 

5 Each have the nickname, the Dons, 

6, Queen Park won the Scottish Cup, Queens Park Rangers won the League Cup, and Gap Queens Park, from Wrexham, finished bottom of Wales's 2nd tier, league, the regionalised North Wales part that season.

17. So they are famous as rugby, then football, then tennis names, not croquet, or the other way around for the first two. The last was due to be the name of Kilmarnock Athletic a football club who were rivals to Kilmarnock FC, in the late 19th Century, so notable to be mentioned in their histories even to now.
