no chance for classical latin; in medieval latin: Clarion
Explanation:
the first clarinet was constructed in 18th century, so there is no chance for a classical latin word for it.
Origin of the word is french "clarin" from latin "clarus"=clear, thus instrumen of clear sound
In medieval latin CLARION was used for an instrument similar to modern clarinet.
