Did KI make up the names of important people?

When i saw Star Wars episode 1-The Phantom Menace, i saw that there was a planet named Malistare. Also, Ambrose is the name of a greek food that the gods eat in legends. And i think MooLinda Wu was copied off of Wu: Homecoming Warrior. The main charecter is Wu and her grandma's name is Malinda.

This may be a coincedence, but i think that it is probably the fact that the people there are star wars geeks; read one too many Percy Jackson and the Olympians and that they watch disney chanel too much! Any feedback on this will be helpful

Merle Ambrose's name is probably a play on Merlin Ambrosius, a wizard in the King Arthur legends.

Yeah, Ambrose is a reference to Merlin (I'm surprised I didn't catch that), Falmea is a near-anagram of flame, Baelstrom sounds like maelstrom, a type of storm at sea, Cyrus Drake I'm almost sure is heavily influenced by Snape from Harry Potter (I picked up on that when Ambrose says "Oh, I trust Cyrus completely. I can already tell that won't end well.)

I'm not sure about Moolinda Wu. I doubt they would reference a disney channel movie (which is way different than a disney movie. Although these days it's getting about the same...).

Lol, I've noticed that a lot of the names of the quests are based on things like that too.

Well, a lot of things in Wizard101 are supposed to be puns. Like Penny Dreadful, Merle Ambrose (Merlin Ambrosia), all the trees in Ravenwood, stuff like that. Seriously though, Wendy Wu: Homecomig Warrior? Are you serious? That one for SURE is a coincidence.
