What does the "rel" attribute stand for when using it to link a page?

I noticed the rel attribute when we linked the html document to the css document. What does the "rel" attribute mean?

You can read all about it here. I never thought much about it because I've only used it with stylesheets. But there are over a dozen values for the attribute.

I always thought it stood for "relationship", but it's "relation." Here's a more in depth answer from a similarly asked question on Code Academy.
