My name is Roi, but I spell it Roe with an umlaut over the E. I spell it רועי, but it can be spelled רואי as well. Also, I'm a girl, so it can be used for both genders, but it is traditionally used for the male gender.

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.
