This short rebellion, subdued easily by the King's troops, is known in France under the name of "Drôlerie des Ponts-de-Cé" (Les Ponts-de-Cé's joke).
In the past, Les Ponts-de-Cé had known many different names, which are :
- Castro-Seio (889)
- Pon Sigei (1009)
- In Saiaco (1036)
- Saiacus (1090)
- Seium (1104)
- Pons Sagei (1115)
- Pons Sagii (1148)
- Pons Saeii (1291)
- Le Pont de Sae (1293)

Indeed, the city has the characteristic of being spanned by many bridges which connect the various zones and roads of the city between them. This is also why the French meaning could be translated by "Cé's bridges".
