firstly yunan has only one meaning and that is Greek,
and you are right, in turkish(and all related turkic dialects) we add suffix' to create new words or meaningfull type
statements like,

yunan; greek
yunanım; i am greek
yunansın; you are greek
yunan; s/he/it is greek
yunanız; we are greek
yunansınız; you are greek
yunanlar; they are greek

istan is a persian word that means land, when u say özbekistan u refer özbekland

iceistan=iceland :P
