The Spanish form of the name "David" is "David."
From yet another source:
DIEGO: Said to have been derived from Spanish Santiago ("St. James"), but in the Middle Ages Diego existed in the Latin forms Didacus and Didagus, causing some scholars to suspect that Diego may have originally derived from the Greek word didakhe, meaning "doctrine, teaching."
San Diego is a corruption, a blot, and should be "Santiago."
