Theme naming is quite common in Japanese media, it makes it much easier to remember and come up with new names.

Since a Pokemon Professor's basically the embodiment of those attributes, they named them after trees/plants. The trend started strongest with Oak, as oak trees are known as old and wise (exactly what Professor Oak is).

Interestingly enough, people also have the theory that Ash will become a pokemon professor later in his life because of his name.
