A term coined by Lewis Carroll in the poem "Jabberwocky" which was on the novel "Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There" published in 1872.

It's a combination of the words 'gallop' and 'triumphant'
"He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back"
(Lewis Carroll, "Jabberwocky" from "Through the Looking-glass and What Alice Found There")
