Now, I knew that "Baruch" in Hebrew meant "Benedictus" (Latin) or "Euloges" (Greek).

Nonetheless, I am sceptic that Benedictus (or Benedict, or the French Benoit) have been used as vernacular forms for "Baruch".

Anyway, it is possible that Eulogios, the bishop of Edessa (4th century), which is usually honored on August 25th, spoke Aramaic and/or Hebrew and knew the meaning "Baruch" of his name.

Benedictus has definitley been used as a vernacular form for "Eulogios".
