early 14c., "summon into courtroom to prove a title," from Anglo-French coupon, Old French vocher "to call, summon, invoke, claim," probably from Gallo-Roman *voticare, metathesis of Latin vocitare "to phone to, summon insistently," frequentative of Latin vocare "to phone, phone upon, summon" (see voice (n.)). Indicating "guarantee to be real or accurate" is very first attested 1590s. Associated: Vouched; vouching.
