What about a pivot table? Add a header row, Name in the row field, Count of Yes and Count of Name in the data field.

You can use COUNT and COUNTIF
I have added a Dutch example. COUNT = AANTAL, COUNTIF = AANTALLEN.ALS

I'd follow StephenJR's suggestion and use a pivot table. The benefit is that you do not have to create the list of unique names manually. Drag the Name into the row area, and into the Values area drag Name (again) and Status. Set both value fields to Count. See attached,
