In 2013 British Parents Named Their Children Ream, Lohan, Puppy And Tea
DID the parents of three children named Ream pick the moniker in honour of The Only Way Is Essex’s Joey Essex, who uses the word to men “good” or “well good”?
One reason we like Essex is that his name fits his job. He lives and works in Essex. He is called Essex. It’s hard to think that Joey Dorset would have faired to well. And Joey Kent would have been viewed as an interloper.
The Sun says Essex has inspired: “A Ream come true for fans of Towie – Babies named after Joey’s catchphrase.”
Dippy TV star Joey, 23, usually spells it “Reem” and together with “Creepysick” uses it to describe something as “amazing”.
