Why use name when it is easier to use the numerical value?  

Something like &#x2014; should be good for —.  (You can get the code
value by doing the C-u C-x = on the displayed character.)

|       character: — (displayed as —) (codepoint 8212, #o20024, #x2014)
|                                                               ^^^^^^

I see that the entity names are listed in


Load the above file within Emacs.

  M-x eww http://www.w3.org/TR/xml-entity-names/byalpha.html RET


  M-x browse-url-emacs RET
  http://www.w3.org/TR/xml-entity-names/byalpha.html RET
  M-x load-library RET shr RET 
  M-x shr-render-buffer RET

Write the resulting buffer to an Org buffer or a text file. Then C-s for
the unicode codepoint, C-a to get the entity name.  You are done.
