fanfaronade \faen-fae-reh-NEYD\ (noun) - Verbal fanfare: boasting or blustering boisterously.
"Walters introduced his daughter with a fanfaronade that embarrassed her so much she interrupted him."
French fanfaronnade, from Spanish fanfarronada "bluster" from fanfarron "braggart." Spanish may have borrowed it from the Arabic farfar "talkative" from farfara "to become agitated or talkative." A person given to fanfaronades is a "fanfaron."
