Is it born or borne out of?

The correct spelling is “borne,” with an “e.” It's one of two past participles of “to bear,” meaning (a) to give birth or (b) to carry. The one without the “e” is used for actual or figurative birth: a star is born, to a born loser; things are born of necessity or desperation; children are born out of wedlock.

What does borne by you mean?

"Born" is an adjective meaning to bring forth as by birth or being a natural. "Borne" is the past participle of the verb "bear" (bear, borne, borne) meaning to support, to carry, to hold in mind, to suffer.
