Geography is not my strong point, but let me quote B-G more fully:

S. Guy or Guido was born about A.D. 950, at Berchem-Saint-Agathe,
according to some;  according to the general opinion, at Anderlecht
near Brussels, in a poor house situated near the convent of the Minims,
called "Sinte-Wyen gelege," which has since been decoreated with his
statue . . . The Blessed guido (in Flemish, Wyden), is represented in
pilgrim's habit, with horse and ox at his feet, a harrow at his side,
and in one hand two palms.

Surely the same guy.

Oriens.
