Adopted as an established local name according to BC Parks:

“…a classic horn-shaped summit, which is notable for the frequency of its rockslides; the rockslides are audible to campers and are a source of much curiosity and interest.” (memo from BC Parks, file C.1.62).

Mount Klapperhorn (and Faith, Hope and Charity) are perhaps private jokes of a Parks Branch planner in Victoria.
