That's why we call it a Relational Database.
Nope, that's not why. It's called "relational" because the data is stored in the form of relations. Why those math folks called this thing relations I'm not sure. However, I do know that the relation in relational is not about relationships.
The fact that a relational database can store information related information is an important part of what makes it useful, of course.
