I remember hearing Rabbeim call the mashechta "Yuma", but shouldn't it be called "Yoma", which I have also heard?

I know mashechta Beitzah is sometimes called "Beiah" based off the Magen Avraham or because of a halachic mistake; is there something similar by Yoma too?

Not pronounced Beiah. Cf: piyyut composed by the Ra"Ch (IIRC), found in the margin of most editions of gemara. – Adam Mosheh Nov 14 '13 at 2:41
@AdamMosheh That just means he didn't pronounce it that way (or that he was bad at writing poetry). – Double AA Nov 14 '13 at 2:44
See Magen Avraham 156 – sam Nov 14 '13 at 3:58
