Yes, cycads (Cycas sp.) are sometimes called "sago palm" but that is also the common name for Metroxylon sagu (a true palm) which produces "sago", an edible starch. This case illustrates why Scientific Names are important. They are for one and only one species.

This is not a Pineapple plant, it's a type of Cycad, not sure of the exact species
