do we need (oc) parenthesis if an OC has a unique name?

For example

I'm thinking probably not, and to do so might set a bad precedent.

That tends to be done if there is a singular OC with that name to disambiguate them from a char of the same name in an established series.

Even then, I'm thinking you parenthesis the creator/owner of the OC rather than (OC) unless we don't know who it is.

Similarly probably doesn't need "hilda" in parenthesis, unlike david_(hilda) which does, since there isn't any marra belonging to david outside of this franchise.
