Of course you can dislike, but Giedroyc came into history under Giedroyc name. And neither me, nor you can deny this fact 

Giedroyć, Giedroyc, Giedroyce..

There was a large enough variety of forms. If anyone has identified as the target to specify which one was the predominant form and approved use of it internationally? I doubt. IMHO in English text would probably be logical to use Giedroyc, indicating in brackets Lithuanian and Polish and may be Latin forms, at least for the first mention in the text...
