What's the origin of this term?
AdSumADS
Jamaica, 1968.

Wild guess: the word actually has Latin origins via either English or French influence. Rex, "king," with an inflected form, regis, "of the king," with counterparts/cognates in the romance languages such as English's "regal." Perhaps there's some ring of "Kingston Town" or simply labeling it as grandiose.
