 I see a connection, a thread going to Titus 2.. Seems to me that ouros and horao are Greek relatives but the Strong’s doesn’t catch that (and a quick google search turned up empty).  There is no Strong number for “ouros” which appears in several compound greek words and is defined- a guard, be “ware”, a watcher, a warden.  Compare with 5432 phroureo- which describes God and means the “oureo” “before; above” 
Note: the following links go to the blue letter bible- verse/concordance page

Titus 2:5– “keeper at home”
3626 oikouros from 3624 and ouros (a guard, be “ware”)

1 Peter 1:5 – kept/guarded/protected
5432 phroureo {froo-reh’-o} AV – keep
from a compound of 4253 and 3708 horao {hor-ah’-o}

John 10:3- of a door-keeper
2377 thuroros
from 2374 and ouros (a watcher);; n m

John 20:15– “a keeper of the garden”
2780 kepouros {kay-poo-ros’}
from 2779 and ouros (a warden);; n m

Gen 2:15 (adam’s assignment)- 08104 shamar {shaw-mar’}
AV – keep 283, observe 46, heed 35, keeper 28, preserve 21, beware 9,
mark 8, watchman 8, wait 7, watch 7, regard 5, save 2,

“Keeper”- man, woman, God
