The most common theory is that this name comes from the Bulgar language with meanings according to the different interpretations: “wolf”, “short” or “snow leopard”. Some authors, who support an Iranian theory about the origin of the Bulgar language derive “Bogoris” from the Iranian word “bog”, which could mean “godlike”.

Boris is first found in written records in the case of the Bulgarian ruler Prince Boris I (852–889), who adopted Christianity in 864 AD and imposed it on his people. His name came to be known in Europe in relation to this particular act. Moreover, after his death in 907 AD he was proclaimed the first Bulgarian saint, and traces of his cult during this period can be found as far away as Ireland. The Patriarchate of Constantinople recognized the canonization of St. Boris in 923 AD. However, Prince Boris was not a Slav. He descended from the Bulgars. Among the Bulgars the name was known in its two forms: Boris and Bogoris.
