In audio signal processing and acoustics, an echo (plural echoes) is a reflection of sound, arriving at the listener some time after the direct sound. Typical examples are the echo produced by the bottom of a well, by a building, or by the walls of an enclosed room and an empty room. A true echo is a single reflection of the sound source. The time delay is the extra distance divided by the speed of sound. The word echo derives from the Greek ἠχώ (ēchō), itself from ἦχος (ēchos), "sound". Echo in the folk story of Greek is a mountain nymph who's ability to speak was cursed, only able to repeat the last words anyone spoke to her. Animals that use echoes are cetaceans (dolphins and whales) and bats.

Echo. {echo}

1. A wave that has been reflected by a discontinuity in the propagation medium. 2. A wave that has been reflected or otherwise returned with sufficient magnitude and delay to be perceived. (188 ) Note 1: Echoes are frequently measured in dB relative to the directly transmitted wave. Note 2: Echoes may be desirable (as in radar) or undesirable (as in telephone systems). 3. In computing, to print or display characters (a) as they are entered from an input device, (b) as instructions are executed, or (c) as retransmitted characters received from a remote terminal. 4. In computer graphics, the immediate notification of the current values provided by an input device to the operator at the display console.

To reflect received data to the sender. For example, keys depressed on a keyboard are usually echoed as characters displayed on the screen. Local echo ON causes all transmitted data to be sent to the screen of the sending computer. Remote echo ON causes everything that the remote computer (the one you are communicating with) transmits to be duplicated on your computer's screen. See Duplex.

This term has many different uses in IT but basically it describes the action of transmitting a received signal back to the sender - a good way of testing that something has actually been received.
