You could collect names with something like

  (require 'subr-x)

  (let (names)
     (lambda ()
       (when-let ((name (org-element-property :name (org-element-at-point))))
         (push name names)))
    (nreverse names))

and then pass those as the collection to completing-read.

You could get that with

  (and (org-at-table-p)
         (goto-char (org-table-begin))
         (org-element-property :name (org-element-at-point))))

and pass that as the default for completing-read.

I think that'd be the cleanest way, yes.  You could change

  (interactive "MTable Name: ")


  (interactive (list (completing-read ...)))
