Kester Baruch was the professional/writing name used by Frank Perkins between ca. 1927 and 1939. Perkins was inspired to take the name "Baruch" from Baruch ben Neriah (meaning "Blessed, son of My Candle is God" in Hebrew), a sixth century B.C. scribe, disciple, and devoted friend of the Biblical prophet Jeremiah. Baruch ben Neriah is traditionally credited with authoring the deuterocanonical Book of Baruch.

Perkins adopted the name Kester Berwich while teaching in Austria in 1939.
