Baruch in Wikipedia
(Hebrew: בָּרוּךְ, Modern Barukh Tiberian Bārûḵ ; "Blessed") has
been a given name among Jews from Biblical times up to the
present, on some occasions also used as surname. It is also
found, though more rarely, among Christians - particularly

Semitic languages. The most common Arabic form is the passive
form Mubarak, but the form Barack is also used...
