Or put another way, no. Shared hosting needs those prefixes so that other people using the same servers won't have their database names conflict.

But it's just a database name. It doesn't matter. Let it be "ccuk_hello-world" (or better, don't use a hyphen in an identifier and call it "ccuk_hello_world") and move on.
