Question Generate a different volume name with genisoimage

Hello, I'm trying to generate a DVD-Video disc image with

genisoimage -dvd-video -o LEO_IZEN_GDE100ANS.iso LEO_IZEN_GDE100ANS/
However, the volume name of the image (if I burn it to a disc) is CDROM. How can I generate an image so the volume name is not CDROM but instead is LEO_IZEN_GDE100ANS?

I tried reading the manual with genisoimage --help, but it gave me three pages of options which I couldn't parse through to figure out which one to use, even with the help of grep. Google wasn't much help either.

it is taken from the man page of genisoimage:
−V volid

Specifies the volume ID (volume name or label) to be written into the master block. There is space for 32 characters. Equivalent to VOLI in the .genisoimagerc file. The volume ID is used as the mount point by the Solaris volume manager and as a label assigned to a disc on various other platforms such as Windows and Apple Mac OS.
