It's Just A Hippie Naming Strategy

I really hope marijuana legalization works out and whatever, but his name is by far the most interesting thing in this whole "flaky, slightly shady 'Oakland potpreneur'" story:


The letters in his first name stand for "yes and no." His last name, also the creation of hippie parents, is "maybe" spelled backward. It's perhaps fitting, then, that Yan Ebyam came to be neck deep in the murky, quasi-legal world of Oakland's marijuana-growing industry.
