I wouldn't know so ask the question: are other Reed Warblers in other parts of the world less "clamorous" than ours? Actually for a few years (many years ago) I thought the name was "glamorous".

"Glamorous Reed Wobbler" was a running joke with birding friends in
Melbourne back in the early '90s.  I think was - or inspired by - a
typo in the BOCA(?) pocket checklist, aka the "Little Blue Bird Book".
("Black Sawn" was another typo that I remember from the LBBB.)
