Origin of brouhaha

  • French of imitative origin

    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition

  • Borrowing from French brouhaha, but disputed as to where from before that. Possibly from Hebrew בָּרוּךְ הַבָּא (barúkh habá, “welcome”, literally “blessed is he who comes”).
