What Will Happen If I Change the Categories?

  1. I have question for WordPress experts. I want to change/organize some categories. But I don't know actually, if i change the categories name or move to another, backlinks will be lost or not?

    I guess, both permalinks will work for limited time but I need more information about that.

    Thank you.
