Yes. To be one the save side, the project name should be part of the header guard even for internal files.
We are not talking about strings that have to be typed somewhere - just about a world-unique string to avoid clashes. Of course we could debate at what point a string is considered world-unique and if we could make it shorter in any means. But what for ? Neither file size nor CPU utilization (when building) is affected.
Of course we could also use a SHA(1/2/3) hash as header guard... but what I found when searching was a repeating hint for header guard (also internal): project name + relative path/filename (+ file extension).
I also will enforce this rule for other projects like libidn2, wget and wget2/libwget.
