hul•la•ba•looˈhʌl ə bəˌlu(n.)(pl.)-loos.
a clamorous noise or disturbance; uproar.
Origin of hullabaloo:
1750–60; appar. var. of haloobaloo, rhyming compound based on Scots baloo lullaby
agitation, excitement, turmoil, upheaval, hullabaloo(noun)
disturbance usually in protest
An uproar or fuss.
They made such a hullabaloo about the change that the authorities were forced to change it back.
Origin: The Oxford English Dictionary has this as a native English word, first appearing in print in 1762 (Smollett). The OED and other etymologists do not consider the possibility that the word was introduced from India into the English language. The term 'Hullabol' is still used in Indian English to describe a type of public demonstration, involving making a great noise. 'Hulla' is either derived from 'Hamla' meaning 'attack' or from 'halhala' meaning 'ululation' (both words from Persian and then Urdu). 'Bol' is from the Hindi verb 'bolna', 'to utter or say'.
a confused noise; uproar; tumult
