Nope. The name Palestine is mentioned in herodotus 5 centuries before such events. It is just that jews like to twist words and truths.
Herodotus provides the first historical reference clearly denoting a wider region than biblical Philistia, as he applied the term to both the coastal and the inland regions such as the Judean Mountains and the Jordan Rift Valley
The etymology most likely comes from Pelesheth "Philistia, land of the Philistines.
The jews claim that the Philistines disappeared and the people inhabitting the roman province named palestina-syria were green extraterrestrials that fell from the sky.
The Philistines were absorbed into the local Canaanite population. The second part of my post addresses the possible etymology Philistine/Philistia.
