    Whereas with NDN, to provide at least as much privacy, the Interest
    names would need to be encrypted as well. Is this assumption
    correct? If yes, what mechanism does NDN provide for privacy of
    names in Interests? 

for privacy, applications can encrypt names.

NDN-CCL doesn't currently provide encryption schemes, yet NDN protocol 
itself allows for this by allowing any value as name components.

i'm sure there are more examples, meanwhile some writing on name encryption:
