Hi there...As far as I know, Voivod IS the name. Talking with family, they have never thought it to be at some point changed to anything else. But then again, you never know. And looking through the Romanian phonebook, it is pretty common, as you said. I'm glad you mentioned "Voievod", as when I first started researching Voivod on the web, this word came up alot. It's nice to know what it actually means! Again, thank you so much for your help!
