I do not think so. Borin is one of the citystates which surround the
safelster sea reagion now, but I do not think Borin would have excist before
the time of Arkat and the godlearners. There will be region which are called
everytime the same name, but I do not think a founder of a relgion will take
a regions name for his new church. This is the reason why I imagined a
founder which name is Quantan van deen Borist. The time in which this
boristi heresy was founded was a very troubled time for Ralios and the task
of this new church was not only a task for a local place. The Boristi wanted
to free whole Ralios from the thread which came from Dorastor through Gbaji.

I would prefer to take such a reason why the Boristi are called this name.
