The way of writing Céloron de Blainville is often wrong especially in modern documents :

  • "Céloron" (or often Celoron in texts in English) is often miswritten "Celeron" ou "Céleron", because of confusion with the Intel Celeron chipset of 2002.
  • "Blainville" is often miswritten "Bienville", because of confusion with the name of the New France hero Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville.
