Another version of Roi is רואי (spelled with alef instead of ayin) which means either "eyesight" or "my beholder".

In the Bible, Hagar names the oasis where an angel came to aid her and her son Ishmael "Be'er la-Khai Roi" - being the well (be'er) where God saw her plight and sent the angel to help her. "Roi" here is God, who beheld her.

It's a less common name than this version (רועי), but you might want to add it to the databse.
