Ninus the legendary ruler of Assyria that founded Nineveh is a must
later Greek legend if I recall correctly. I do not believe he is
attested in any Assyrian text. As to its relation to other Greek names
I cannot say but I believe the name originates from the Greek
pronunciation of Nineveh rather than another Greek root. Is this
question related to the Hebrew Bible in some way?
