No, the most similar historical name in the past is "Nam Viet", yet it is a name given by another Chinese person you refer as Trieu Da.
交趾 was named by the Han Chinese but Vietnamese are actually and originally 越南 "Yue Nan". Come on grasy! Yue Nan were true descendents of Bai Yue. Why did the Han Chinese promote the Han too much up to a point that 越南 "Yue Nan" was already forgetful.
Don't use the legends and myths, just the list of the historical names.
and don't forget to "ignore" the copyright notice since this is not commercial
