I'm with you Riccardo, ONYX I'm seeing lots of typefaces turning up that I recognise from way back with new names attached to them, that I never heard of. Obviously companies are rebranding traditional typefaces and marketing them to a younger generation. The original Onyx began its life in 1937 at the American Type Founders, and the version in my personal collection comes from Monotype Typography digitised in 1997.

In the case of TypeShop/FontSite/SoftMaker the renaming seem to date to the “hundreds of fonts in one cheap CD-rom” era.

There also are the ones renamed in the early days of digitisation, like Bitstream’s Swiss 721, Dutch 801, etc.

The removal of the “Alternate cuts” feature by MyFonts is a real bummer on this regard.
