"Gold" in Russian is "zolata". I don't recall ever hearing it as a surname.

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?
