It is not from Latin. The East Anglian dialect word dallop meant a lump or a clump of grass. It was first recorded in the 16th century and its earlier origins are unknown; perhaps it is originally from Old Norse (compare Norwegian dolp, a lump).

Many Norse words remained in use in the parts of England occupied under the Danelaw.
