Fausset's Bible Dictionary [1]

In Septuagint and Vulgate Berechiah ( Isaiah 8:2), father of Zechariah in Ahaz' reign. The same names occur later,  Zechariah 1:1. Josephus mentions another Zachariah, son of Baruch, slain by the Jews in the temple shortly before the last siege (B. J., 4:5, section 4). If Berechiah was father of the house, not of the individuals, the "Zachariah son of Baruch" in  Matthew 23:35 (where "Zechariah the son of Jehoiada,"  2 Chronicles 24:20, in the individual sense is meant) may be identical with Zechariah, son of Je (" Jah ") Berechiah . ( Isaiah 8:2).

Smith's Bible Dictionary [2]

Jeberechi'ah. (Whom Jehovah Blesses). Father of a certain Zechariah, in the reign of Ahaz, mentioned  Isaiah 8:2. (B.C. about 739).

Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible [3]

Jeberechiah . The father of Zechariah, a friend of Isaiah (  Isaiah 8:2 ).

Holman Bible Dictionary [4]

 Isaiah 8:2 2 Kings 18:2

Morrish Bible Dictionary [5]

Father of Zechariah, in the reign of Ahaz.  Isaiah 8:2 .

Cyclopedia of Biblical, Theological and Ecclesiastical Literature [6]

(Heb. Yeberekyah', only in the paragogic form Yeberekya'hu, יְבֶרֶכְיָהוּ , Blessed by Jehovah; Sept. Βαραχίας ), the father of Zechariah, which latter Isaiah took as one of the witnesses of his marriage with "the prophetess" ( Isaiah 8:2). B.C. cir. 739. Both the Sept. and the Vulg. give the name in its ordinary form, Barachiah, and, as we do not find it elsewhere, the initial י is probably an error, which may be accounted for by supposing the preceding word בו to have been originally plural, בני , the two witnesses being both sons of Barachiah, and the final letter, by a mistake of the copyist, to have been prefixed to the following word. The same pair of names seems to have been of no unfrequent occurrence in the priestly houses. Zechariah the prophet was son of Berechiah ( Zechariah 1:1), and we have "Zacharias, son of Barachias" ( Matthew 23:3;  Matthew 23:5). Josephus also (War, 4: 5, 4) mentions another Zacharias, son of Baruch. (See Zechariah).
