What would the name "GOLD" be likely to be in Russia (Belarus) in the late 1800s? #general

I'm trying to sort out a family or two of GOLDs - that name used in the
US and in England. But further back than that?? I find myself
wondering if searching for the surname "GOLD" is appropriate. What is
likely to be the original (Russian/Yiddish/Hebrew/whatever would have
been used then around Gomel) form of the name? I'm having the devil of
a time with this family, maybe one day I'll get it all together and ask
for some other eyes to look at it - for the moment I'm giving them a
rest while I try other things.
