I don't know the etymology of either the town of family name Wojnicz
but it should be easy to check it. The "naive" etymology would
derive them from "woj" which is old Polish for "warrior".
But etymology is usually surprising so I would opt for this 
ad hoc version.

Yes, they came from the vicinity of Kaunas/Kowno. Actually,
there were several unrelated families of that name but
different coats-of-arms.
