Dash is from ON, or Old Norse, or ME, Middle english, dassche. I recommend looking it up in a large dictionary. The word I came up from several sources is STRIKE, interestingly enough, as you read on.
My name is HOLT, in OE, or, ME WOLD. It's meaning, to me, most simply is WOOD, but most sources list it rather as FOREST. You can trace Holt to the Greek word khldos, which comes from the word KEL, which means either a twig or to STRIKE. So, if you understand what I wrote, Holt means forest, but meant part of a tree, the twig. It is indeed hard to see the trees for the forest sometimes. Dash is often listed as strike, so, here we go round again.......
