I honestly don't think it should matter whether you do or don't use their name if the marking is supposed to be completely impartial, weird or not, sounds like a double standard.
My professor did mention it, with a grin on her face, the book was only wrote a couple of years ago, so it is not widely circulated and it is one of very few books comparatively looking at the two subjects, which was the reason she wrote it and why I struggled so much finding references.
