Mid 17th century: from French cacophonie, from Greek kakophōnia, from kakophōnos 'ill-sounding', from kakos 'bad' + phōnē 'sound'.

  • The word cacophony, meaning ‘a harsh discordant combination of sounds’, came via French from Greek kakophonia. Kakos was Greek for ‘bad’, and phōnē meant ‘sound’—it is the root of words like euphonious ( see euphemism), symphony (Middle English) ‘harmonious sound’, and telephone ( see telegraph).
