Want me to take the Oath? OK, here’s my pledge: I will never stop mocking the new corporate name born of the AOL-Yahoo! merger: Oath.

Except it isn't: [webmasterworld.com...]
Oath is the name of the internal Yahoo division of Verizon, not the new name of Yahoo.

Whatever part of the business the name is used for, it's a pretty stupid name and wide open to derision. Why not just choose something that is just meaningless? What were they thinking of?
