Try this:
names = {'A' 'B' 'C' 'D' 'E'};
val = [0;1.5;0.5;0.5;1.5];
C = {[names{:}].' val}
C1 = C{:,1}
C2 = C{:,2}
TC = table(C1,C2)

Stephen — Thank you!
Another option is to replace them with string variables:
names = {"A1" "B1" "C1" "D1" "E1"};

@David Hill It is ok but in your code the output becomes again a cell type and both values are merged together as individual enitity of cell.
