Correction: As David Park has already noted [mg109025] in this thread,
it's dangerous to use upper case letters to begin names of objects you
create.
In particular, C is a protected symbol, used as the Head of parameters
generated, for example, when solving differential equations.
For the nonce, neither A nor B is a System symbol, so you could use
both. But probably best to be consistent in naming three such related
entities in a way such as he suggested.
