Why should the same meticulousness apply to the bracha? Certainly cooking has less particularity than baking. Where along the spectrum does making blessings lie?

comment Earliest source for “Baruch Hu U'Baruch Sh'mo”
Except he doesn't say the same thing. He says that in one place (after אבותינו in the first bracha of chazarat hashatz) the people would say EITHER בהו"ש or בשכמל"ו.

comment Rashi on the Rif?
+1 though I don't really follow your second question. It would have been put there to help in understanding the words of the Rif. That's why Rashi is printed anywhere. In any event, welcome to Mi Yodeya!

comment Is “Yarden” a Hebrew name that was used?
Frankly I still think this is of topic. There are lots of questions which are off topic which can have halachik nafka minah. That doesn't make them on topic.
