Here are 11 definitions for dawt | daut. One of them comes from an actual dictionary article about the word. Please vote for two of them, by reply to this post, before the deadline, which is  Thursday 11 November 13h00 CET. That is a little longer than normal, because Armistice Day is a public holiday in France, and in the morning my wind band will be playing at a church service followed by a procession

 and wreath-laying ceremony.

 1. Sc. Rotten.

 2. Yorks. A barn swallow.

 3. A medieval form of butter-churn.

 4. To pet, fondle, caress, make much of. 

 5. India. A sub-caste of the labouring class (Shudras) mainly involved in mining and metal-working.

 6. Scottish (chiefly Orkney and Shetland). A place where a boat can be hauled up and kept ashore; spec. a scooped-out trench at the edge of a beach surrounded by a shallow wall of stones. Also boat-daut.

 7. The forming of a semi-permanent joint between two ropes or two parts of the same rope by partly untwisting and then interweaving their strands.

 8. Arch. An enriched angle bead, often having a capital or base, or both.

I'm guessing Scots, though based on the accuracy of my recent guesses that's a good reason to believe it's not. Anyhow, of those, the long and the short of it: 1 and 6.

I'm most convinced by 6 and 11:

I'm not convinced that daut = daughter, so I'll vote 2 & 4 instead. 
BTW Paul, what instrument do you play?
