The Yahoo name is being falsely reported to change to Oath, but that's incorrect.

Oath is simply the name Verizon has chosen for the media division that will house Yahoo’s media sites, AOL (including TechCrunch and Engadget) and Huffington Post. Yahoo Oath Name Change Falsely Reported [gma.yahoo.com]

The brand will apply to the digital media division of Verizon after it buys Yahoo’s internet assets for $4.48 billion, a deal that is expected to close by the end of June. But do not count the legacy brands out just yet: Yahoo, AOL and The Huffington Post will continue to exist and operate with their own names — under the Oath umbrella.
