I've recently learned that Yates is a Scandinavian word with many different spellings. One of those is the word Geats which should really be pronounced Yates. This was a tribe in southern Scandinavia and mentioned in Beowolf although mispronounced as Geats in the , it should have been pronounced Yates.
