From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary [easton]:

  Baal-gad
     lord of fortune, or troop of Baal, a Canaanite city in the
     valley of Lebanon at the foot of Hermon, hence called
     Baal-hermon (Judge. 3:3; 1 Chr. 5:23), near the source of the
     Jordan (Josh. 13:5; 11:17; 12:7). It was the most northern point
     to which Joshua's conquests extended. It probably derived its


     name from the worship of Baal. Its modern representative is
     Banias. Some have supposed it to be the same as Baalbec.
     

From Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's) [hitchcock]:

  Baal-gad, idol of fortune or felicity
