Etymology

Chambers's Twentieth Century Dictionary
M. E. dream, drēm, not recorded in A.S., but pointing to an assumed A.S. dréam, cog. with O. High Ger. troum, O. Norse draum, &c. This is distinct from the A.S. dréam, mirth, minstrelsy, being ultimately related to dreug-, draug-, drug-, to deceive, the radical sense therefore 'illusion.'

Usage

In literature:

I am the dreamery creamery butter.
"Ulysses" by James Joyce
Donald's mother and sisters were at The Dreamerie the night the father and son arrived.
"Kindred of the Dust" by Peter B. Kyne
