I just found out what the word "Yola" means! :)

It's Turkish, and in English, "Yola" means "Road"

Here is Google Translate: http://translate.google.com/#auto|en|...

Did anyone else know that?

I think Yola also means "Hatch" in another language where Yola is where you hatch your ideas. Maybe Yola people knew that it meant Road as well because Yola is a road to building a website. On the "About Yola" section of their website it only says about "Hatch" so I don't think they knew it meant road. Anyway, I had absoloutly no idea it meant road before now!

Amar, you are right - I had absolutely know idea that Yola meant "road" in Turkish! Not sure if anyone else at Yola did. It is a great meaning though, so I am glad to discover this. You learn something new every day!

Yeah it is a good meaning. Yola is an awesome name. I never knew it either until I felt like typing it in on Google Translate!

Wow, I have to admit, I'm surprised. Does anyone know why Synthasite decided to pick Yola as its new name?
