FENACE or PHINUS or FINAS

Can someone offer an opinion or help on a given name I've come across? Could this man's given name be Phinius? His family is related by marriage to both the Teague and Journey families on my paternal (Walker) side.

1900 census for Liberty Chapel, Attala, MS, one of Green Adams' sons is transcribed as "Fenace E". The handwriting of the name on image is clear but the spelling of the name uncertain.

1910 census finds the family in Proctor, Crittenden, AR. The image shows "Phinus N" for this same son's name and the transcription is the same.

1920 census finds the family in the same location in AR. The transcription matches the image with name of "Finas".
