The original name of the city was New Ridmark, in honor of Lord Sanbanid's home. When Setole acquired the city in (year), King name renamed it to remove its association from the Malas Empire. A decision was made to name it after Lord Sanbanid, for his and his descendants' hospitality to Alotol settlers in the region.
