It seems changing names when arriving to the States was a general practice those years. Also the destruction of all the documents. However Covalciuc is a relatively common name in the North-Eastern Romania. This name has a Russian influence, the "-ciuc" suffix is a slav characteristic in names terminology. It has an eplanation if your great-grandfather lived in Suceava. The name does not carry any possible translation, nothing I may think about right now; I don't find any translation or meaning to this name.
Dorohoi (this is the correct name) is a small town in the North-Eastern Romania, not vry far from Suceava. I assume your great-grandmother's last name was Ciubotari, this is a common name.
I hope these explanations help you in finding a trace.
