World War 1 was called "The Great War" and "The War To End All Wars" until after we had a second global war and people realised that "Oh, shit, we could end up having lots
of these fucking things!" and it got renamed, with the second one being called World War 2.
I would think that the first schism would have originally had it's own "this is the most definitive thing ever" sort of name and then after the second, when the people have woken up, pulled their heads out of their collective arses and realised that there's still potential for people to differ and divisions to form, they'd go with a "Great Schism One", "Great Schism Two" format as you never know when there's going to be a third.
The second schism is far less likely to be thought of as the "last" and "most definitive" than the first is to be thought of as "the only one we'll ever have".
The second of anything like that is generally a rather sobering wake-up call.
