What is Jedi Master Yoda's full name?

"Yoda" is the only name he has been given in any published media. If he has a longer name, it has never been revealed.
It's interesting to note that, in the original treatment for Empire Strikes Back, Lucas envisioned Yoda's full name as "Minch Yoda"; this has been circulating for a while, but was electronically confirmed on the old StarWars.com1:
In the early story development of Yoda, the initial descriptions varied from a large alien being to a tiny one. The diminutive direction ultimately won out, and Empire's concept artists developed illustrations of gnome-like and elfin creatures. In the story treatment, Yoda's full name was Minch Yoda, and in the first draft, he was known only as Minch.
However Leland Chee, the Keeper of the Holocron and official manager of Star Wars continuity, revealed in a 2007 Q&A on the StarWars.com forums that this is not Yoda's canonical name; unfortunately the forums have been taken down (and not accessibly via the Wayback machine), but this particular thread was archived by a fan (bold is my emphasis, italic is from the thread):
What's the canon status of the story 'Heart of Darkness?'
Yoda never went to Dagobah prior to ROTS, so that part is non-continuty. The original story of Yoda confronting Bpfasshi Dark Jedi is from Heir to the Empire which had the confrontation taking place during the Clone Wars. And Minch is not part of Yoda's name.
As with al things prior to the Great Disneyfication, it's unclear whether this is still true in the new Canon. At the very least, it has not been contradicted.

However, as the annotated screenplays explain, he was originally envisioned to have a slightly different name: Minch Yoda. From the notes for Empire:
At that point Yoda did not have a name and was referred to as "The Critter." In the story treatment the little creature is named Minch Yoda. In the first draft Yoda is referred to only as Minch. In his introductory scene Luke asks the creature if he knows of the Jedi Knights, and Minch says he used to serve them.
The name "Minch" has never made it into any canon material in reference to Yoda (a separate character was later created with that name).
