Origin of the name Bejenar / Bejenaru

Hi, I was hoping someone out there would be able to help me find the origins of my family name. I was once told a story behind the name of Bejenaru (the original spelling) but I am yet to find any history of this story. It relates to people under the serfdom system who bought their freedom to live as individuals.
Anyway, any information about the name Bejenar / Bejenaru, such as it's origin, background, etc would be greatly appreciated. I would also be interested to here from any Bejenaru s out there, especially ones from around Cernovitch / Bucerena (spelling?) as we may be related!
