were all 4 of the the proceeding items in the vode eliminated by trademark checks?

1. Yoda  (Not defeated in any contest vs. another choice)
2. Yeti
3. York, loses to Yeti by 4–2
4. Yak, loses to York by 4–2
5. Yoga, loses to Yak by 3–2

given york is a gograpical region/place name that is normally not trademarkable.
that was the basis of our much older naming scheme so im kind of suprised we made it down to the fith choice
