Acclamation is a noun that refers to a loud, enthusiastic welcome.

The word acclaim comes from the Latin word acclamare (ock la MARE ay) which means ‘to cry out at.’ When a group of people make an acclamation, they are crying out in approval of someone or something. For example: I had no idea our band was so popular on the local scene until I heard the acclamation greeting us when we entered the restaurant last night. I thought, these guys must really dig our music.
