It comes from Dollarhyde, anyway. Hyde referred to a trapper who sold pelts, or hides. Perhaps "dollar" is a type of animal in Old English that could be trapped, or else it is probably and adjective describing the trapper (like "good trapper" or "tough trapper" or whatever).

I don't have my Old English studies with me now, or I'd look it up.
