Baruch could be David or Arthur or Miles or anything else-if he wanted to
be. My gr grandmother Matilda was Rosa. There was no rule about
translating names or additional names used in various countries and
languages.

But you will have to have some evidence that the passenger list 'Daved' is
actually the same person before you 'know' it is him.

"While we are on names, I wonder if Baruch could be David? (I can't find my
great-grandfather on any ship manifest and Baruch is the only name that
comes close to when he might have come. Any thoughts?)"
