I always thought it was gaffer tape, not gaffa - as in only the gaffer (boss) is allowed to have a roll of it.

It's both: "Gaffer tape" is the generic name, while "Gaffa" is the brand name of Advance's gaffer tape.

Ah, seems very similar to our duct tape which is often mispronounced as a popular name brand Duck tape.
