I'd say it gomfof. But what do I know.

I think you're right. It looks like a baby mammoth, so the second part of its name (oth) probably comes from that. I don't know any animal that starts with 'gomph', though, but it's probably pronounced like an F. :P

Is it not just pronounced 'Gomfoth', saying that the 'ph' makes an 'f' sound?
Have you heard of Junk Jack? Yeah it's pretty cool...

Yes, that's correct. But it could possibly be gom-photh (which gives a f sound) or gomp-hoth (which gives a p sound), depending on where you break the syllables.
English is a screwy language sometimes.
