The name "Yeo" is from the Old English word ea, meaning simply "river"’.
The Yeo that enters the Parrett at Langport also bears the name "Ivel", which philologists have reckoned to be derived from an Old Welsh word gifl, meaning 'forked river' (it is also the Old English for "morsel", pehaps an unlikely origin), and even suggesting that "Yeo" in that one case may be derived from "Ivel".
