In the Sword Coast Adventure Guide, both the Wood and Wild elves are said to go by the elvish name of "Sy'Tel'Quessir" (Page 106)

Do they both have the same name? Are Wood elves considered by other elves to have "abandoned or lost much of their ancient culture" due to their flexibility?

This appears to be a typo. According to the Forgotten Realms wiki, Wild elves go by the name "Sy'Tel'Quessir", meaning "People of the Wilds", and Wood elves go by the name "Or'Tel'Quessir", meaning "People of the Wood".
