"a medley," 1550s, from French galimafrée "hash, ragout," from Old French calimafree "sauce made of mustard, ginger, and vinegar; a stew of carp" (14c.), origin unknown, perhaps from Old French galer "to make merry, live well" (see gallant) + Old North French mafrer "to eat much," from Middle Dutch maffelen [Klein]. Weekley sees in the second element the proper name Maufré.
