Russian names for Stranger

I like to use "A dictionary of Period Russian names" to find suitable Slavic/Russian names to use at a LARP I play. I came across the name Ninei/Ninej/Niney, which supposedly means 'Stranger', and I was wondering if anyone had any information on the name or its accuracy, or how it is at least accurately pronounced.



# Ninei (m) -- "stranger."

o Ninei. 1145. [Mor 139]
* Vars: Ninej. 1145. [Mor 139]
o Niney. 1145. [Mor 139]

Mor = Moroshkin, Mikhail. Slavianskii imenoslov ili sobranie slavianskikh lichnykh imen. Saint Petersburg: n.p., 1867.
