Berekhyahu son of Neriyahu the scribe

This is the seal of Baruch son of Neriah who was the scribe to the prophet Jeremiah. Baruch's full name must have been Berekhyahu. The suffix (yahu)

Baruch Seal in the ancient Hebrew language is a form of Yahweh (God). The name Baruch means "the blessed." Berekhyahu means "the blessed of Yahweh."

Baruch is mentioned in Jeremiah 36:1-4: "Now it came to pass in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, that this word came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying: "Take a scroll of a book and write on it all the words that I have spoken to you against Israel, against Judah, and against all the nations, from the day I spoke to you, from the days of Josiah even to this day. "It may be that the house of Judah will hear all the adversities which I purpose to bring upon them, that everyone may turn from his evil way, that I may forgive their iniquity and their sin."

"Then Jeremiah called Baruch the son of Ner-iah; and Baruch wrote on a scroll of a book, at the instruction of Jeremiah, all the words of the LORD which He had spoken to him."
