Etymology 1Edit

Probably from Middle Low German holm (girt), which pertains to the Germanic root *helmô (compare English helm). Older theories derive it from the plural of dialectal Hulbe (beam) with -ben-m (a rather common development in German). This seems less likely, particularly since Holm was spread by Jahn, who introduced several Low German dialect words to the standard.
