In Avengers: Endgame, when

Scott Lang escapes the Quantum Realm, one of the first places he passes by is the memorial park in San Francisco called Wall of the Vanished.

There he finds several stones engraved with the names of thousands of people. The in-universe reason is quite straightforward. These were the names of

all the people who became victims of the Decimation (Thanos' snap) with some of the known names (seen on-screen) from the memorial listed here.

Is there an out-of-universe explanation about the names on the engraved stones? (For example, are these names of the people, in real life, related to the MCU or some sort of Easter Eggs to characters played by the actors of Avengers: Endgame in other movies?)

    Technically, the “snappening” is not a decimation, which would be the killing of 1/10 of the population. I don’t think there is a proper word for it in a English, but if it existed, it would probably be “hemiation”. – Euro Micelli Sep 4 at 22:47

Book My Show reported that one of the names was Roberto da Costa aka Sunspot so there are at least some Easter Eggs hidden in the wall. Unfortunately they don't provide a visual of the name.

MCU has always avoided referencing X-Men which might have been due to the fact that the rights were owned by Fox. Now that the Disney-Fox merger is over, we can expect to see more X-Men references, with Avengers: Endgame being the first of many. After Ant-Man returns from the quantum realm five years later, he comes across the Vanishing Memorial that has been set up with names of everyone who had been dusted and scans through them. One of the names is Roberto da Costa aka Sunspot, a mutant who is associated with The New Mutants and X-Force. He is confirmed to be in the New Mutants film coming this August and might be in the upcoming X-Force film with Deadpool too.

Screen Rant reported on this as well taking their information from this reddit post. Apparently some of the names belong to staff who have worked on Marvel movies.
