In 1945, the government of Tran Trong Kim changed the name of the bridge to Nguyen Hoang – the lord who openly explored the Thuan Hoa area. After 1975, it was officially named Truong Tien Bridge. This is a familiar folk name because in the past, on the left bank of the bridge there was a royal mint factory of the Nguyen Dynasty.

From 1995 to the present, after restoration and repair, the construction unit arbitrarily changed the name Truong Tien to Trang Tien and attached the name board of Trang Tien bridge at the top of the bridge.

Later, the local government renamed the bridge, Truong Tien. However, since then, the two names Truong Tien and Trang Tien bridges still go hand in hand. The bridge also becomes an attractive destination, attracting a large number of tourists to visit during the Hue travel itinerary.
