Baal is Yahweh?

If one believes there is such a thing as Yahweh-derived theophoric names, then you would have no choice but to agree that the pagan god Baal is Yahweh. Let us examine the following name in the Bible:

1 Chronicles 12 New International Version (NIV)
Warriors Join David

12 These were the men who came to David at Ziklag, while he was banished from the presence of Saul son of Kish (they were among the warriors who helped him in battle; 2 they were armed with bows and were able to shoot arrows or to sling stones right-handed or left-handed; they were relatives of Saul from the tribe of Benjamin):

3 Ahiezer their chief and Joash the sons of Shemaah the Gibeathite; Jeziel and Pelet the sons of Azmaveth; Berakah, Jehu the Anathothite, 4 and Ishmaiah the Gibeonite, a mighty warrior among the Thirty, who was a leader of the Thirty; Jeremiah, Jahaziel, Johanan, Jozabad the Gederathite,[a] 5 Eluzai, Jerimoth, Bealiah, Shemariah and Shephatiah

Now let us focus on this particular figure, who said to be one of the warriors who helped David:

According to  Ellicott’s Commentary for English Readers:

Bealiah.—Baal is Jah.  Such names indicate that “Baal” was once a title of the God of Israel.
