Origen

early 17th century (in the sense 'express approval'): from Latin acclamare, from ad- 'to' + clamare 'to shout'. The change in the ending was due to association with claim. Current senses date from the 17th century.

More
  • claim from [Middle English]:

    Latin clamare ‘to call out’ is the base of English claim. It also gives us acclaim (early 17th century) from ad- ‘to’ and clamare ‘to shout’, and reclaim (Middle English). This was first used as a falconry term in the sense ‘recall’. The sense ‘make land suitable for cultivation’ is recorded from the mid 18th century. Clamour (Late Middle English) comes from the same source.
