How can I modify the below to start on a named range (ie Start date)?  Meaning until we reach the Start Date then it will not return any date or  a "-" might be more appropriate (not sure what is best)

=EOMONTH(TODAY(),0)+2

thank you

This still isn't clear to me.  

You have a cell with the named range "StartDate".  This could be any date, not necessarily the begining of any month.

You want a formula to return "-" until today's date matches StartDate.  

What exactly do you expect the value to return on/after the StartDate?  Your formula appears to report the second day of the following month.  Is that correct?  You don't want the first day of the following month?  Like this?
=IF(TODAY()>=StartDate,EOMONTH(TODAY(),0)+1,"-")

If it's two days, then:
=IF(TODAY()>=StartDate,EOMONTH(TODAY(),0)+2,"-")
