This question about the origin of the name Yan-C-Bin has so far attracted only one answer. That answer makes the claim that all of the names of the Princes of Elemental Evil were made up "wholecloth" with "no mythological/cultural callback".
While I thought that might be possible for Yan-C-Bin, it was clearly not true for at least some of the Princes, whose names incorporate Greek and Latin roots that match their aspects. I said as much in a comment. The comment has since been deleted.
I thought my tone was respectful, and I don't think the comment is no longer needed, since as of this writing the answer still makes the claim. I am pretty sure I actually posted the comment, because I initially posted noting the roots "hydr" and "cryo" and then within 5 minutes edited to add "ogre"; I would not have been able to edit had the first comment not posted.
I am at a loss as to why my comment was deleted.
