It is generally bad thing to abbreviate only because it is too long. 
Modifying the upstream original names might be a source of confusion.

In this case, using CharactersStateMatrices as is is the best. If the
name is expected to be frequently used by library users, short name
could also be added.

However, as Pjotr already mentioned, the class might not be needed,
depending on the design of classes.

Sorry for late response.
