Alteration of errant. Originally meaning wandering, the term came to be an intensifier due to its use as an epithet, e.g. in the phrases arrant thieves and arrant knaves (i.e., “wandering bandits”).
arrant (comparative arranter, superlative arrantest)
Particularly used in the phrase “arrant knaves”, quoting Hamlet, and “arrant nonsense”.
Some dictionaries consider arrant simply an alternative form of errant, but in usage they have long since split.
The word has long been considered archaic, may be confused with errant, and is used primarily in clichés, on which basis some recommend against using it.
