  1. Well the name Dash was mentioned to me years ago by a co worker and I fell in love with it. My boyfriends name is Duane and my name is Ashlee (they call me Ash) so Dash is his first initial and my nick name. Plus I also love the name because it isn’t too common.

  2. So our Dash is unique because his name is a mash-up of his first two names – David Asher. David means “beloved” and Asher means “happiness” so he’s our beloved happiness 🙂 We love his name/nickname as it brings a little uniqueness to a common name in David! His daddy’s name is David too, so it helps clarify which David/Dave someone is calling out 😀

  3. My wife taught school for a couple of years and had a pre-school aged boy named Dash. His parental unit was a hair stylist and tattoo artist combo. Needless to say…the kid had a cool vibe to him. The wife and I both agreed on the name in a matter of seconds when deciding and we never had a backup boy name.

    The only dislike would be the difficulty had by medical staff when it comes to pronunciation of his full name (Dashel). Day-shel and Duh-shel are the most common efforts.
