Girod/Dorig connection

Surnames: Girod
I heard somewhere, can't remember where, that the town Dorig, in Richland Parish, was named after someone named Girod who must have been very modest. Is there any truth to this story? My maiden name is Girod, descended from a brother of Nicholas Girod, the mayor of New Orleans in the early part of the 19th century.
