<<And why is a clarinet called a horn?>>

This is one thing that always bothers my sensibilities. To me, the word "horn"
when used to describe a clarinet seems disparaging and crass. I do not feel
this way about French horns or horns in general. I just think there are better
synonyms to choose when describing a clarinet.
