"GOP" stands for "Grand Old Party," the nickname of the Republican party. According to the GOP website, "GOP" originally stood for "Gallant Old Party."

The first Republican president was Abraham Lincoln. After the Civil War, the upstart Republicans were perceived as the party that won the war. The Republicans who were firmly fixed into the Federal Government were ironically dubbed the "Gallant Old Party," which soon became known as the "Grand Old Party," which was then shortened to the "GOP."
