- trump: There are two distinct words trump in English. The now archaic term for a ‘trumpet’  is of Germanic origin, although it and its derivatives reached English via the Romance languages. Its ultimate source was Old High German trumpa, which no doubt started life as an imitation of the sound made by the instrument it denoted. This passed into English via Old French trompe. Its diminutive trompette has given English trumpet , while its Italian relative trombone (literally ‘big trump’) is the source of English trombone. The cards term trump  is an alteration of triumph.
